Kremlin: no decision yet on sanctions against Georgia

The Kremlin has noted Russian lawmakers’ tough and unanimous stance on anti-Russian provocations in Georgia, but the country’s leadership has not made a decision on economic measures against Tbilisi yet, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"This tough response from Russian parliamentarians and complete unanimity in their stance against the backdrop of the Georgian TV host’s unprecedented behavior are quite natural," Peskov said, commenting on the statement on Georgia approved by the Russian State Duma. In it, lawmakers suggested responding to Georgia’s anti-Russian provocations with a number of economic measures.

The presidential spokesman recalled that "decisions are made by the government and, ultimately, by the president of the country." 

"So far, no decision has been made," TASS cited him as saying.
