Leonid Slutsky: “The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on“ manipulation proposals ”on the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions in connection with coronavirus is a cynical provocation”

Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
 
“The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on“ manipulation proposals” on the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions in connection with the coronavirus is a cynical provocation. Russia did not raise the issue in this way; sanctions are not our agenda at all.
 
But one cannot but admit that any sanction restrictions only exacerbate the global economic downturn. It would be naive to believe that the same Ukraine would receive any additional bonuses in the context of Russian countermeasures in the impending crisis.
 
Such a position is nothing but a short-sighted manifestation of national egoism. Once again, I would like to emphasize: a pandemic is not the time for mutual accusations and escalation. All resources must be thrown into the fight against # COVID-2019 and its global implications.”
