Foreign economic relations of constituent entities of the Russian Federation
Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on the introduction of new anti-Russia sanctions by Australia
We noted a statement by Foreign Minister of Australia Marise Payne on the introduction of financial sanctions and a ban on the entry of one Russian citizen and four companies linked with the construction and maintenance of the Kerch Bridge.
After Crimea’s return to the Russian Federation in 2014, official Canberra chose a course towards the erosion of Russia-Australia relations, following the infamous principle of “Western solidarity.” Demonstrating an obvious lack of independence in foreign policy and reluctance to assess the situation in Crimea without bias, Australia supports all anti-Russia attacks by the United States or its satellites, regardless of how absurd they look.
Unfriendly acts by the Australian ruling circles will definitely evoke an adequate response on our part.
