Economic sanctions against Russia should be strengthened – Kuchma

The representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in Donbas, Leonid Kuchma, believes that economic sanctions against Russia should be strengthened.

He said this on Friday, September 15, answering journalists' questions during the 14th annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Russia will withstand economic sanctions at the current level. The Soviet Union withstood 50 years of the cold war, and therefore Russia is able to withstand these trade sanctions," Kuchma said.

He noted that in order to influence Russia, economic sanctions should be strengthened.
