Medvedev: Russia will cancel retaliatory sanctions after the cessation of the external pressure of the West


GORKI, March 14. Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia “sooner or later” will take retaliatory measures to Western sanctions, but only after the cessation of external pressure.

“They (the retaliatory restrictive measures) will end sooner or later, it’s completely understandable. But we, of course, they will remain as long as there remains an external pressure, here illusions should not be”, – said the Prime Minister at the meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers.

He said: “If something extended (sanctions of Western countries against Russia), so will get in response to this extension”
