Activists blocking Russian trucks in Ukraine are “crazy” and “bandits”. This was stated by Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers, reports “RIA Novosti”.
“As far as I know, some crazy trying to stop our heavy cars,” commented the Prime Minister. He asked whether “armed groups” or “some Ukrainian forces”. Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, which the Prime Minister was asked to report on the situation, explained what was involved in the lock group associated with the banned in Russia “Right sector”. “The bandits, that is”, — concluded Medvedev.
According to him, steps on blocking trucks are “disgraceful.” “The fact that some guys there to stop trucks using a firearm, means that the authorities in Ukraine, or in other words, are these extremist groups,” said the Prime Minister (quoted by TASS).
Commenting on an official ban on the transit of Russian trucks, which, as reported Dvorkovich, Russia on Monday has notified Kiev, Medvedev admitted that in response, Moscow may ban the movement in Russia of all modes of transport from the territory of Ukraine. The Prime Minister instructed “to continue negotiations through the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of transport of the Russian Embassy”.
Earlier in the Kremlin described the actions of the Ukrainian activists of “lawlessness”. “Of course, it is absolutely outrageous, when with the connivance of the authorities in Ukraine such chaos going on in relation to our carriers,” said President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov. However, he did not comment on Russia’s ban on the passage through its territory of Ukrainian trucks, held the day before. Dvorkovich at the meeting with Medvedev stated that Russia continues to ignore the Ukrainian trucks in transit to Kazakhstan.
