Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev said that the whole policy of Washington against Moscow over the past 100 years was based on the application of sanctions. Such statement the Prime Minister made in answer to questions users of the social network “Vkontakte”.
“Their whole policy (over the past 100 years, anyway) was built on endless sanctions against our country, no matter how it is called — the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation. We have not had a period in history when these sanctions did not exist”, — said Medvedev.
According to the head of the government, the United States will never abolish restrictions imposed on Russia. In this case, Medvedev noted that this policy of Washington is breaking international collaboration and does not allow Russia along with the United States to address the key issues of international security and economic development.
Western countries, including the USA, imposed sanctions against Russia in 2014 because of the situation in the South-East of Ukraine and Crimea became part of Russia. After this limit has been extended repeatedly for the last time this happened in March 2019. In addition, according to unofficial data, the US has prepared a new package of restrictive measures associated with the poisoning in Britain of former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. He is waiting for the approval of the White house.
