Russia could restrict airspace in sanctions battle: PM

Pro-Russian fighters stand by a T-64 tank in Starobesheve, southeast of Donetsk, on August 31, 2014Russia will retaliate against a new round of Western sanctions over Ukraine and may block flights through its airspace, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview published on Monday. Medvedev also suggested that Western sanctions would not make the Kremlin change its course, adding that Russians — like the Chinese — would simply pull together in the face of new punitive measures. The European Union is expected on Monday to consider new sanctions against Russia, in a further blow to the country’s ailing economy already teetering on the brink of recession. Brussels said it was ready to review the need for new sanctions if a truce agreed between Kremlin-backed rebels and Kiev forces holds in eastern Ukraine.
