Extension of sanctions against Moscow by Russophobian lobby in Brussels will affect millions of jobs in EU, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
"On June 22, the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union made a decision on extending economic sectoral restrictive measures against Russia until 31 January 2016. We are deeply disappointed that the opinion of the Russophobian lobby took the upper hand again in the EU, as it dragged through the decision on extending illegal restrictions," the Foreign Ministry said in a commentary. "Along with that, Brussels intentionally keeps silent about the fact that as a result of that, hundreds of thousands, and even several millions Europeans, according to some estimates, will lose their jobs," the ministry noted.
