Russia will keep the counter until then while the West will not lift restrictive measures, said President Vladimir Putin. About it reports “Interfax” on Monday, April 3.
“If they (sanctions — ed. “Of the tape.ru”) will continue forever, we will always restrict access to our market of those goods which we produce ourselves,” he said at a media forum of the Russian popular front (onf).
The head of state noted that restrictions imposed by Western countries eventually helped to develop domestic agriculture.
Putin stressed that Moscow will always proceed from the following principle: “we Will do everything that is in our favor, and try not to do anything that prevents us to develop.”
March 12, press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian authorities will not raise the question of easing of sanctions by the US.
In late February, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged to prepare for the fact that in terms of sanctions have to live indefinitely. “Let’s see what our friends are overseas, in Europe. They perpetuate these sanctions, they codify them”, — he noted.
