Russia cannot accept the European Union’s policy of anti-Turkey unilateral sanctions, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Wednesday. reports citing Russian media.

"Certainly, it is an issue between Turkey and the European Union. We proceed from the fact that the sanctions pressure - although, regrettably, it is already a factor of modern international relations - does not come from a toolbox of diplomacy. It should not be the cornerstone of international politics," Zakharova said adding, "That brings about gruesome consequences."

"We need to state that, largely, it is a part of present-day reality, but why unilaterally, illegally, in the form of aggressive pressure to promote their own interests - unconditionally, we cannot accept this policy," she stressed.
