Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the Russian government had proposed to introduce retaliatory sanctions against the U.S. and the EU, but the President did not give the permission to do it.

“The Russian government already proposed some response steps. I believe that this is not necessary,” – the president told reporters.

However, he said, “if something like this continues, of course, we’ll have to think about who and how works in the Russian Federation, in the key sectors of the Russian economy, including the energy sector.”

“We would not like to resort to any response steps, I hope that we will not need them,” – said Putin.

Putin also expressed confidence that the United States had originally been behind the events in Ukraine, but at first remained in the shadow.
