Vladirmir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitriy Peskov, responded to extension of the round of economic sanctions imposed on Russia at today’s meeting of G7 leaders in Japan: ‘We still believe, that the issue of sanctions is not on our agenda. Nevertheless, we doubt, that such-like decisions may have a positive influence on global economy and international affairs in general’, - RIA News quotes Peskov.
Earlier today, G7 leaders supported extension of the round of economic sanctions against the Russian Federation over its aggression in Ukraine.
G7 Summit started yesterday, on May 28, in Japan.
A number of Western countries have introduced several rounds of economic sanctions against Russian individuals and entities since Russia seized Crimea in March 2014.
