Sanctions Against Russia for Recognizing Elections in Donbas Foolish: Venetian Politician

New sanctions against Russia for recognizing the elections in the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in Donbas would be unprecedented and foolish, founder of the Indipendenza Veneta (Independent Veneto) movement Alessio Morosin said.  "It would be foolish of the European Union to impose new sanctions against Russia for the mere reason that it officially recognizes the elections of November 2. There has been no analogous precedent in international practice," Morosin told RIA Novosti.

Sanctions Against Russia Look Like ‘Legal Lawlessness’: Russian Communications Minister

The sanctions, imposed by the Western countries on Russia over the Ukrainian crisis resemble "legal lawlessness", Russian Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov said on Thursday.

"The word sanctions should not really be really used in this case because sanctions mean legally justified, significant measures, some kind of an international norm. The fact that what we are seeing now is still not sanctions, is a kind of a legal lawlessness," Nikiforov said at a meeting of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Commission on telecommunications and IT in Moscow.
During the meeting the minister also spoke of the government's role in developing Russia's communications industry.

Expert: Implementation of Sanctions Against Russia Is Wrong Strategy

 Implementation of sanctions against Russia is a mistake, French oil and gas company Total Chief Executive, Christophe de Margerie said in his interview to Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.
“We cannot let them persuade us that Russia is our enemy. Our energy supply depends on this country. If Americans, based on the historical reasons and internal political motives, want to escalate the conflict, then it is their choice. But we, Europeans, have to deal with this crisis in a different way, not painting everything in black and white only,” de Margerie said as quoted by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.
