Kremlin tries to scare the EU with counter-sanctions: “This is just like war”

Kremlin tries to scare the EU with counter-sanctions: “This is just like war”

The Russian government has announced its intention to impose preventative measures in response to Western sanctions, including in the rocket and space industries.

The goal of these sanctions is to protect Russian companies, stated Russian Vice Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on Wednesday, as reported by censor.NET citing RIA Novosti.

On Tuesday President Vladimir Putin ordered the government to develop counter-measures to the Western sanctions.

“All of our preventative measures will first and foremost aim to protect our industry. They will not try to make the western businesses’ life worse – we are not interested in that and nobody is setting it as a goal. But we will protect ourselves strongly, consistently, and with initiative. You will soon find out about these measures,” stated Rogozin to journalists on Wednesday.

The Vice Prime Minister added that the preventative measures will ensure the “survival” of the Russian space industry. “This is just like war – a la guerre comme a la guerre. Nothing personal. Nothing that we do will worsen our businesses’ position in order to make life worse for anyone else,” emphasized Rogozin.
