Russia ‘ready’ to break ties with EU if sanctions imposed: Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that Russia was prepared to break off relations with the European Union if it continued with planned sanctions.

Sergey was asked: “Are we heading towards a break with the EU?” in a snippet of an interview by the Solovyov-life program published on its Telegram channel and shared by the Foreign Ministry.

He responded that Russia was ready to do so in the event that sanctions are imposed in areas that create risks for Russia’s economy.

According to some reports, the EU is planning to impose travel bans and asset freezes on allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, after France and Germany gave the go-ahead.
