Sanctions imposed on Russia are like declaration of war - Putin
MOSCOW. March 5 (Interfax) - The sanctions that are being imposed against Russia are like the declaration of war, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
"A lot of what is happening now, of what we now see and what we face is undoubtedly a means of fighting against Russia, by the way, these sanctions that are being imposed are like the declaration of war," Putin said at a meeting with women from the cabin crews of Russian airlines on Saturday.
"Thank God, things have not gone as far as that yet, but I think our so-called partners still understand what the results can be and what threats it poses to everyone," he said.
