MOSCOW, Russia – Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev stated that applications of US sanctions against Russia should be treated as a “breach of law,” speaking during an interview with Russian journalist Sergei Brilev in Moscow on Saturday.
“This is ugliness and loutish behavior. Basically, it is an uncompetitive fight against Russian companies. A lot of big companies have been under sanctions,” stated Medvedev.
The Russian Prime Minister added that the US sanctions “have a strictly targeted implication against our country’s interests. Basically, they are targeted to destroy our sociopolitical structure and to destroy our economy and certain people.”
The Russian Prime Minister noted that the US had a “projectionist” attitude towards its own companies and added that the US compete economically with China and Europe, but battle against Russia “on the grounds that Russians do not behave well.”
