MOSCOW, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. New anti-Russian sanctions will not be left without proper reaction from Moscow, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday after the EU adopted a new package of anti-Russian sanctions.
The European Union seems to have made its choice against peace settlement for the crisis in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The EU actions are totally devoid of any logic and common sense, it said. A course at deteriorating the already tense relations with Russia that has been taken by certain forces in the EU is taking shape now, the ministry noted.
“In connection with the statement of European Council President Herman Van Rompuy of September 11 on introduction of a new package of anti-Russian sanctions, we state the following,” the ministry said.
“Making this step, the EU actually made its choice against the process of peace settlement of the intra-Ukrainian crisis, support for which is expected from all responsible forces in Europe,” the statement said.
“Today, Brussels and heads of EU member states should give a clear answer to EU citizens why they are subjected to the risks of confrontation, economic stagnation and loss of jobs,” the ministry said. “Give people a chance for peace at last,” it said.
