The Minister of the Russian Federation Nikolay Nikiforov with humor reacted to the inclusion in the list of punishments of Ukraine and suggested that it could be due to the advent of the 3G network in Crimea.

the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday enacted a punishment against the Russian Federation for a period of one year. The sanctions list has incorporated 388 physical and 105 legal entities. In addition to Nikiforov, the list includes, for example, the Head of the Ministry of defense of Russia Sergey Shoigu, the speaker of the state Duma Sergey Naryshkin, the Head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, children's Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Sergey Glazyev, leader of "Fair Russia" Sergey Mironov, the Head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev.
in the Sanctions list Ukraine got Russian organizations of the IT sector - "Kaspersky Lab" and " doctor Web ". Explaining the situation, the Minister said, because it's destructive actions of politicians." I estimate that all sanctions manifestations are temporary ill-conceived decisions of politicians that are configured in such a destructive approach. Here the European Union has imposed penalties against Russia, Russia imposed in response to punishment in relation to the EU and businessmen come and want to do business and have a positive Outlook to the workplace, " said Nikiforov.
"I am confident that all these symptoms (sanctions - ed.) will end sooner or later, and we don't see this in the long term," said Nikiforov.
