Russia: Europe itself to pay price of energy sanctions

Russian Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Alexander Grushko stated on Wednesday, according to TASS news agency, that the European Union is the one who will be affected by sanctions against Russian energy. "The EU, trying to put pressure on the Russian Federation, resorts to energy blackmail. The Europeans themselves will pay the price," underscored Grushko.

He further continued by saying that Russia will be taking countermeasures against the new European Union sanction package, which is expected to be revealed later today. "We will take retaliatory measures. [We will] work out appropriate [measures] in order to protect our legitimate interests in the economic and other spheres," asserted the deputy minister.
