TOKYO, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The West and Japan would not broaden sanctions against Russia due to Crimea, as this would cause damage to all, the head of the Russian state oil company Rosneft, Igor Sechin, said at a Russian-Japanese investment forum in Tokyo on Wednesday.
“Politicians will not be expanding the list of those who may be subject to sanctions. The involvement of a big number of economic entities, all the more private individuals, will only deepen the conflict,” he said. “This is counterproductive and causes damage to everybody,” Sechin added.
“We view the situation rather calmly, it cannot last long,” he noted, adding that the developments around Crimea would not affect the projects advanced by the company.
