MOSCOW, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry will propose to the country’s leadership to take retaliatory measures in response to sanctions of the United Stated and European Union, as measures that are left without response fuel appetites, State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin stated at a meeting at the Federation Council upper house of parliament.
“I doubt that the Western partners will get it [retaliatory sanctions] right, there is the term a ‘tit-for-tat response’, we are considering this [the further response[,” Karasin said. “Sanction regimes are applied to us for the first time, so we will propose to the government to take retaliatory measures, as measures left without response fuel appetites. Sanction regimes are absolutely illegitimate,” he added.
