"We are seeing an expanding transportation blockade. Such actions actually aimed at the economic and social exclusion will inevitably lead to retaliation", said Gryzlov.

"We cannot allow the humanitarian and socio-economic catastrophe to emerge in the territories, which population exceeds the population of some European countries," -said Gryzlov.
