Opportunism overtook common sense in EU decisions on Ukraine - Russia ― RT News

Russia is accusing the EU of taking an "extremely unconstructive position" by freezing talks on easing visa barriers over the Ukraine crisis.

“Opportunism overtook the common sense that dictates at least to listen in to the position of the EU’s strategic partner, Russia,” the statement on Russia’s Foreign Ministry website said.

“Russia doesn’t accept the language of sanctions and threats, but if they are carried out in practice, they won’t remain without response,” the statement added.
