“I think that the organizations that are responsible for this, I mean the Russian organizations whose competence includes all these issues, they will have to think over questions about how such a decision would be appealed,” TASS quoted him as saying.
Along with this, he expressed the opinion that this decision is part of the ongoing anti-Russian hysteria, which "has already acquired a chronic form."
He made a corresponding statement at a meeting with deputy prime ministers.
