ASTANA, April 21. /TASS/. Western sanctions against Russia will not be successful, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Thursday during the XIII Eurasian Media Forum.
"The sanctions imposed on Russia by the West are wrong. They will not be successful," he said.
For his part, former UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw noted the sanctions were justified, adding that they do not work at times. However, he expressed the hope that relations between Russia and the West would change for the better.
