The Kremlin again drew the attention of the uselessness protivoestestven sanctions and wars: It is harmful to all parties, said the press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov.
"From the very beginning we said that such approaches do not have prospects, they harm the interests of not only countries against which introduced punishment, but also to the interests of the countries: and the businesses and large taxpayers of those countries, that is, the punishment is administered. It's illogical, It's unnatural position in the world economy, and, most importantly, without result ", - said Peskov correspondents.
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 said the penalties against entire sectors of the Russian economy. In response Russia in the last month of the summer of 2014 limited the import of food items from countries that have imposed against her punishment. At the end of June 2015 in response to the extension of the punishment the authorities of the Russian Federation has decided to extend food embargo until 5 August 2016.
