Western sanctions against Russia hurt European economies: Russian official

Sanctions against Russia have reached a deadlock and are hurting European economies, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

A vote opposing anti-Russia sanctions by the regional council of Veneto in north-eastern Italy on Wednesday shows that "the process of the anti-Russia propaganda in the context of Ukraine has reached an impasse," Zakharova was quoted by the Russian newspaper Izvestiya as saying.

The vote concerns the recognition of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation and the lifting of anti-Russia sanctions.

Stefano Valdegamberi, a regional council lawmaker, told Izvestiya that the anti-Russia sanctions were "a mistake" on Monday.

Veneto has suffered from the negative economic impacts of the sanctions, according to Valdegamberi.

The European Union has introduced several rounds of sanctions against Russia since 2014, accusing Russia of being involved in the armed conflicts in Ukraine.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations, and took countermeasures in August 2014, banning certain food products imported from the countries that imposed restrictions against Russia.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
