The Russian Prime Minister Medvedev D. A. believes that the current year was a turning point for the Russian Federation, and for the world.
" I am confident that He will go down in the history books As largely a turning point not only for Russia but for the whole world. In many respects, As the starting point of a new time, " Medvedev said, RIA " Novosti ". He added that the opposition in Ukraine, the return of the Crimea to Russia, the punishments and the cooling of relations with the West forced the Russian Federation for a fresh look on the world coordinate system. The Prime Minister has noticed, that at the present time " truly, the whole system of European security is put at risk." As put at risk the basic values, further globalization, and really the whole philosophy of peaceful development, which was formed after the second world war, " Medvedev said. He Also said that all attempts of pressure on the Russian Federation by restrictions proved fruitless, with Moscow it is impossible to talk from a position of economic blackmail. Remember, the relationship between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. On the last working day of the week the EU and the US on the background of the progress of the Minsk agreements between Kiev and militias Donbass about stopping the fire entered against Russia fresh penalties against financial, oil and defense industries.
