The state Duma of the Russian Federation must be ready to continue "suicidal course" punishment of the West and to consider the experience in similar conditions, said state Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin, opening the autumn session of the lower house of Parliament.
Extended by the EU Council penalties against individuals and legal entities from Russia and Ukraine, which the EU considers responsible for undermining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, entered the first day of the week effect. Proper regulation promulgated promulgated in the journal of the EU.
"I also believe that we owe in full force to consider the experience in terms of so-called predatory punishment of the West and, in addition, be prepared that the joint opponents will continue their own self-destructive course," said Naryshkin, speaking at the plenary hall.
According to Naryshkin, the danger of new punishments continue." You see them in danger all the new punishment continues, and they are heard incessantly, on any occasion, and even without any reason, despite the fact that they undermine the very foundations of international law and global economic development ", - said the speaker of the state Duma.
Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. At the end of July 2014, the EU and the US from point penalties against private individuals and organizations have moved to the measures against entire sectors of Russia's economy. In response, Russia restricted imports of food items from countries that have entered against her punishment. In June 2015, in response to the extension of the sanctions Russia has extended food embargo for one year, until August 5, 2016.
