He emphasized that in the case such decisions will be made by Ukraine, the Russian side will implement the responsive measures. At the same time, Russia thinks that the real steps will not be made.

"First of all such measures will lead to the impossibility of the citizens of Russia and Ukraine to use the transport services. Beside the inconvenience and discomfort it will not lead to anything," he added.
