Moscow disappointed by EU's move to prepare new illegitimate sanctions - Foreign Ministry

Russia has been disappointed by the decision of the Council of the European Union to prepare new illegitimate unilateral sanctions against Russian citizens, the statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry made public on Monday said.

"The decision to prepare new illegitimate unilateral restrictions against Russian citizens approved by the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union on February 22 of this year over a contrived excuse causes disappointment. Another opportunity was missed by the European Union to rethink a course of artificial connections, sanctions and pressure in relations with Russia which over the past years has demonstrated its complete inadequacy," the Foreign Ministry pointed out. "Instead, following the bloc’s discipline and anti-Russian stereotypes, Brussels again instinctively pushes the inoperative sanctions ‘button.’ Moreover, defying logic, first a political decision is made and then it is planned to arbitrarily find candidates for it," the statement noted.
