MOSCOW, July 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich has described EU’s lists of sanctions against Russia as unfriendly acts which cannot but affect Russia’s relations with the European Union.
“Our attitude to the sanctions lists remains unchanged. This is not a method of work and interaction among countries, especially if major players like Russia and the European Union are in question. These acts are unfriendly and cannot but affect the general state of our bilateral relations,” Lukashevich said, commenting on EU’s decision to expand its “blacklist” for Russia and Ukraine.
Lukashevich noted that the European Union had not yet officially published its decision to expand the sanctions list, comprising 61 people. They include Russian politicians, bureaucrats, deputies and law enforcers, as well as some leaders of federalization movement in south-eastern Ukraine.
In addition to that, the European Union has banned its businessmen to deal with two Crimea-based companies, which have now become Russian-owned.
