Kremlin believes EU sanctions backfire on initiators
The Kremlin still believes that the European Union’s sanctions against Russia are not legitimate and first and foremost backfire on the European countries, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said about the EU’s decision to prolong sanctions against Russia, including Crimea and Sevastopol.
"It’s traditionally negative," Peskov said when asked about the Kremlin’s attitude to this decision.
"As before, we disagree with these sanctions. We do not regard them as legitimate. Moreover, we believe that they harm not only us but the countries that initiated them," TASS cited the presidential spokesman as saying.
