Putin on anti-Russia sanctions: West to get bored with it soon
Russian President Vladimir Putin expects that the policy of sanctions will make its own ideologists feel bored.
"I believe that soon they will get bored with it. Those who do such things," Putin told a congress of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs on Friday.
"I still do hope that we will achieve normal relations somewhow," TASS cited him as saying.
Putin added that "the policy of artificially imposed restrictions in international business relations is a dead-end road that leads everyone, including the initiators of such a policy, to missed profits and direct losses."
Putin stressed that colleagues of Russian entrepreneurs from other countries "share this point of view."
He also mentioned his recent meeting with representatives of the French business, adding that he discussed its results with French President Emmanuel Macron.
