Medvedev considers Western sanctions test Russia’s durability
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Monday that Western partners tested Russia for durability by imposing sanctions, and the country's response should not be based on simple solutions that undermine its democratic development. Ria NOVOSTI writes about this.
“When some of our, in a manner of speaking, partners, or neighbors, test Russia’s durability for sanctions and different types of threats, it is very important not to be tempted by simple solutions and to continue preserving and develop democratic processes in our society and in our state,” the prime minister said.
Remind, that the European Union and the United States introduced a new round of sanctions against Russia last week, targeting the country's largest banks, energy and defense companies, as well as individuals.
