Russia responds to the extension of anti-Russian sanctions
MFA: EU sanctions are illegitimate from the point of international law
The Russian Foreign Ministry called the extension of economic sanctions against Russia made by European Union the result of short-sighted policy of Brussels.
"The next extension of illegitimate from the point of international law anti-Russian sectoral economic sanctions until January 31, 2017 we perceive as a continuation of short-sighted policy in Brussels", - noted the Russian side.
Russian diplomats have expressed hope that in Brussels, common sense will prevail and the EU will refuse to the logic of confrontation and containment. According to the Russians, then the parties will be able to have a qualitatively new level of bilateral cooperation.
