In the Federation Council responded to the plan of Kiev “destruction of Russia”
MOSCOW, may 27 — RIA Novosti. Member of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Sergei Tsekov commented on the statement by the Deputy Minister on the issues of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons of Ukraine Grigory tuks on the “destruction of Russia” with sanctions.
Tuck drew a parallel between today’s Russia and the Soviet Union. In his opinion, the Soviet Union was destroyed by the sanctions way, “without firing a shot”.
Commenting on these words Tsekov noted that the reason for the collapse of the Soviet Union — not the sanctions, and the lack of consolidation of the society. Russia, by contrast, are United against an external pressure.
“Yes, sanctions are bad, but that we for four years have demonstrated to the world that with them very successfully, rebuild the economy and move forward,” the Senator said in an interview with RT.
Tsekov also noted that the restrictive measures create problems for all, including for Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian side from the limitations that she, like a parrot, enters followed by Europe and America, suffers to a greater extent. If you look at the economic losses of Ukraine in recent years, they are several times more than the loss of Russia”, — said the MP.
