Russia again had to respond to sanctions of the West with mirror measures. On March 19, it became known of emergence in the Kremlin of "black list" - over 200 people got to it. Generally they are politicians, officials, and also the certain public figures who are adjusted very Russophobic. Entrance on the territory of the Russian Federation will be forbidden for the victims of sanctions. However as far as such decision of official Moscow can be considered expedient? After all 60 persons involved in the list, for example, are citizens of the USA. And most of them, as a rule, do not leave the borders of their own country.
Alexander Krylov, president of Scientific organization of caucasiologists: "As experience shows, the policy of the next wipe, the regular spitting and silent patience, on the contrary, convince our western partners and competitors, even somehow opponents in many regions, that really it is possible to be arrogant in their attitude to Russia. And some measures are necessary that they understood that not only they can afford some unfriendly steps in relations with Russia, but these steps will cause some consequences for them.
Here those counter sanctions were intelligible enough for part of the European countries. But, probably, it is necessary to continue because we see, as the United States press on the allies in the goal to toughen constantly their position in relations with Russia though they try to continue all communications where it is necessary for them and it is favorable. But Europe appears in position of the one who drags the burning chestnuts from fire for someone".
