"Military assistance is one thing, and we are talking about this, but in fact Russia does not live in isolation, it sells crude oil and sells natural gas, and tries to borrow some money on foreign markets," he said on Channel 1+1. "And it manages to do it less successfully. Therefore, in fact, several packages of sanctions – these are very serious sanctions – have been prepared, but I cannot give more details."

Yet, he expressed the conviction that the previously imposed sanctions "have been working against Russia."

Klimkin also commented on U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to cancel a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Argentina on December 1.

Ukraine's Foreign Minister says that the U.S. President's decision and a statement by German Chancellor Angela Merkel regarding preventing Russia from seizing the Ukrainian-controlled strategic port city of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov in Donetsk region, Ukraine's east, are "two mega flaps" in Putin's face.
