'I think we should lose interest in this,' said Deputy Prime Minister

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has urged others to stop enquiring as to Brussels and Washington's positions on the sanctions against Russia.

"Yet again, I find myself reading reports that the European Union or the U.S. is considering lifting the sanctions - only to suddenly extend them automatically. I think we should lose interest in this," Rogozin told the presidium of the State Commission for Arctic Development in the Murmansk region government, on March 9.

"We need to stop asking what exactly Brussels or Washington is saying about the sanctions. We need to bear in mind: there will always be sanctions against us," he said.

It was reported that the Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union (COREPER) agreed on a six-month extension of the restrictive measures on the lists of Russian and Ukrainian individuals and organizations whom the EU believes to have been involved in undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence of Ukraine.
