Extension of the European Union's black list due to inclusion of Crimean State Duma six deputies will not contribute to the restoration of normal dialogue between legislative bodies of the EU and Russia, and will not remain without consequences. This is stated in a message posted on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation.
"Moscow is aware of the EU Council decision of November 8, on extending the personal sanctions against Russian individuals which are in EU blacklist - six deputies of the State Duma of seventh convocation from Crimea and Sevastopol.
Restriction against the deputies of the State Duma will not contribute to restoration of normal dialogue between legislative bodies of the EU and Russia, which is so important in the current difficult stage of Russia-EU relations. The Russian side will take appropriate response measures ", - said in a statement.
