Russia rejects EU new sanctions

 
Russia Saturday said the EU's new package of sanctions, which was announced despite the easefire in Ukraine, was sending a signal of direct support to what it considered as "the party of war" in Ukraine.
The
EU
Friday night announced a new package of sanctions against Russian banks, oil firms, and defence firms, as well as more names on the EU's visa ban and asset freeze list.
The EU said the new package, to take effect Monday, will give the union an effective tool, which should allow the EU to provide a response within a short time span. It will increase effectiveness of measures already in place. It will also reinforce the principle that EU sanctions are directed at promoting a change of course in Russia's actions in Ukraine.
Russia's foreign ministry said the EU has demonstrated that its leaders remained in "the political world behind the
looking glass
," and factually sent a signal of direct support to "the party of war" in Kiev, which does not like the results of the meeting.
"Instead of desperately searching for ways how to hurt the economies of their countries and Russia more painfully, the European Union should better support economic revival of Donbass and recovery of life in the region," the ministry said in a statement.
If the EU imposes new sanctions, Russia certainly will respond, the ministry added.
