MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. The carrot-and-stick policy that the United States uses towards Russia is futile, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on the Great Game talk show on Russia’s Channel 1 on Thursday.
"There is a certain addiction to the carrot-and-stick policy, which some pundits in the US also call a dual track approach, in relations with Russia. It is a reality. Is it applicable to Russia? The answer is obvious: ‘No’. [Russian President Vladimir] Putin made this pretty clear to one and all, Washington in particular. Does this policy have any chances to succeed? It has none," Peskov stated.
