MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. The stop lists of undesirable persons, who are prohibited from entering the European Union and Russia by no means help ease tensions in relations, Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said after talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
"We explained our reaction to the black lists of Russian and EU officials yesterday. They can by no means advance the dialogue or ease tensions. Gentiloni said. "In the meantime this is precisely what we need so much."
