MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. Moscow will react to new personal EU sanctions over the situation around Alexey Navalny, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told reporters on Monday.
"There will be a reaction from us," he said, answering a corresponding question.
The decision of the EU to approve sanctions over blogger Alexey Navalny’s case did not come as a surprise to Moscow, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told reporters on Monday, adding that this decision ruins the relations between Russia and the EU.
"It is not a surprise to us. The EU continues to follow a completely unlawful path that ends with an impasse, has a destructive effect on bilateral relations and in no way corresponds to the interests of European states themselves," he said.
