Moscow ‘won’t bend or break’ over US sanctions – Russian envoy to UN
Moscow “won’t bend” and has no plans to change its policies following Donald Trump’s signing of new anti-Russian sanctions, says its permanent representative to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, RT reports.
“Those who invented this bill, if they were thinking that they might change our policy they were wrong, as history many times proved. They should have known better that we do not bend and do not break,” Nebenzia told journalists in New York.
Nebenzia, who was appointed last month to replace the late Vitaly Churkin, added that the ratification was expected, and would “inevitably” further damage the relationship between the two countries.
