Kremlin to study MPs' proposal on tit-for-tat sanctions

The Kremlin needs time to study the MPs’ proposal on anti-sanctions: any measures should not harm Russia’s interests, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"We haven’t studied in detail the essence of the proposed package of anti-sanctions yet; some time will be needed for it, but in any case we can assume that any measures that will be taken will not harm the Russian national interests," Peskov said.

The Kremlin spokesman said that Russian President Vladimir Putin repeatedly stated that these interests are a priority when making such decisions.

"Our parliamentarians’ interest in the issue of countering the unfriendly sanctions policy that some states are conducting against our country can be accounted for, and it is clear that the MPs are working on the issue of minimizing the effects of these restrictions for our country and on retaliatory measures," TASS cited him as saying.

Peskov restated that the Russian presidential administration would "need time to analyze the lawmakers’ opinion, this lawmaking initiative in order to formulate some position later."

Responding to a question on whether the interests of Russian citizens as consumers of certain products will be affected, the spokesman noted that "this is a uniform understanding - the interests of the citizens and the interests of the country."

State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin reported the introduction of the draft law today.
