Sergei Lavrov

Russia announced its willingness to cut ties with the European Union if the latter decided to impose more harsh economic sanctions on it.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said: “We are ready for this. If you want peace, prepare for war.”

The European Union has raised the possibility of imposing more sanctions, in light of a dispute over the treatment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Lavrov said that the severance of relations could happen if the European Union imposes sanctions that “are enough to threaten our economy.”
