MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia will not leave new European Union sanctions unanswered, the foreign ministry was cited by the RIA news agency as saying in a statement on Saturday.
The United States, Canada and the European Union on Friday imposed fresh sanctions to punish Russia for its 2018 attack on three Ukrainian ships as well as its annexation of Crimea and its activities in eastern Ukraine.
