Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, speaking at the plenary session of St. Petersburg international legal forum, said that increasing the role of unilateral restrictions applied by some countries within their political goals.
According to him, the sanctions “have become a way of arbitrary interference in the Affairs of other States”.
Medvedev added that there are attempts to give extraterritorial nature of the sanctions and push for their use anywhere in the world.
According to Medvedev, the sanctions pressure on Russian citizens and companies, which already lasts two years, undermines the credibility of the law.
He called open the question of how Russia’s partners in the international community will come out of this situation.
