Lavrov Slams EU's 'Obsession' With Anti-Russia Sanctions: 'A Path to Nowhere'


Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs said that Russia would respond to any new western sanctions.


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commenting on EU threats to impose new sanctions against Russia said that Brussels is obsessed with impunity and that this is a road to nowhere.

"The fact that the European Union has declared that out actions lack legitimacy and international legal justification means only one thing — that the European Union believes that it can do anything. And when the European Union begins to threaten us with new sanctions, I start to think that in addition to this feeling of permissiveness and infallibility, the EU is beginning to be overwhelmed by another mania — I mean complete impunity," Lavrov said.
