We condemn any sanctions aspirations, we consider them illegal. In any case, the principle of reciprocity operates in this matter, so that we can ensure our interests in the best possible way […] Of course, in our bilateral relations, we would not like to act according to the Leninist formula “one step forward – two steps back”.
