New US Sanctions Will Derail Russia Ties for DecadesNew US Sanctions Will Derail Russia Ties for Decades

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said that by introducing the new sanctions against Russia, the US has explicitly branded Russia as “an enemy”. “New US sanctions against the Russian Federation will undermine relations for decades. In turn, Moscow is ready for different kinds of restrictions,” Medvedev stressed during a press conference in Manila on Tuesday, Sputnik reported. “Despite the fact that our countries have a wide range of contacts and opportunities to discuss some issues, our bilateral relations are deteriorating from day to day”, he said, adding that “our relationships may not have been worse in the Cold War times — 1970s and 1980s.”Medvedev stressed that the sanctions would not hinder the Russian economy, noting that the Russian government had a “wide range of decisions to make”.
