MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. The sanctions against Russia undermine stability of global economy and have no relation to the task of resolving the Ukrainian conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.
“Specific facts have been stated that signal that the unilateral sanctions introduced against us are illegitimate and undermine stability of global economy and have nothing in common with the goal of deescalating the Ukrainian crisis,” Lavrov told a meeting of Russia’s Council of Heads of Subjects (CHS).
“It is evident that restrictive measures are of a double-edged character,” he stressed.
The anti-sanctions voices have become louder in Europe amid “negative impact of restrictions on national economies and interests of business circles who have ties with Russia’s market,” Lavrov said.
The heads of many large companies “confirm readiness to continue work in this country.” “We hope that common sense will finally prevail,” Russia’s top diplomat said.
The United States and the European Union have imposed sanctions against Russia over its stance on Ukrainian events, and Moscow responded with a ban on food imports from countries that sanctioned it.
Earlier this month, Russian presidential advisor Sergey Glazyev said the European Union member states could lose up to 1 trillion euros ($1.2 trillion) if Brussels continues pursuing the sanctions policy against Russia.
