“G7 leaders, stating readiness to strengthen sanctions against Russia, in fact, sign a statement that they are not going to really confront international terrorism. Without Russia, it is absolutely disastrous project,” said the Senator.

According to him, “sanctions” can be a partner to the West. “We, for that matter, it is able to ensure the security of Russia’s own forces,” — said Klintsevich.
