Russia Warns EU Over Iranian Oil Sanctions


'“If the EU follows the Americans and imposes an embargo on purchases of Iranian oil…then the Europeans will suffer first and foremost, and not the US, it has plenty of its own reserves,” Secretary of Russia's National Security Council Nikolai Patrushev told Interfax.

He added that considering the long-term economic problems in the eurozone, a move like that would only deteriorate the situation. The official said the Russian government is aware of EU's plans to impose new sanctions against Iran in its upcoming meeting on January 23.'
