GROZNY, July 31. /TASS/. The West’s anti-Russian sanctions will not last long and it will lift them proceeding from the interests of its own economic security, believes Chechnya’s President Ramzan Kadyrov.
"I think these sanctions won’t last long," the Chechen government’s press service quoted him. "Whatever they say over there, the West will find it rather difficult to do without Russia and they’ll come at a conclusion sooner or later that the sanctions must go. And they will lift them for the sake of their own economic interests."
"These sanctions are targeting a whole nation, not a single person or a definite group of people," Kadyrov said.
"But there should be no public panicking over the fact because all will end well, since competent agencies like the Russian government are tackling the situation," he said. "I’ve said more than once we must try and derive benefits from the sanctions and turn them towards serving our objectives."
"I feel confident success will not be long in coming," Kadyrov said.
On Thursday, Washington expanded the blacklist of individuals and corporations falling under the sanctions introduced earlier over the developments in Ukraine and Crimea’s reunification with Russia.
