Russia says EU sanctions to increase energy prices for Europe

MOSCOW, July 30 (Reuters) - Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that sanctions imposed by the European Union over the crisis in Ukraine will “inevitably” lead to higher energy prices in Europe.

“By going on a sanctions spree, Brussels, by its own will, is creating barriers for further cooperation with Russia in such a key sphere as energy. This is a thoughtless and irresponsible step. It will inevitably lead to an increase in prices on the European market,” it said in a statement. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin, editing by Thomas Grove)
