MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Reinhold Mitterlehner heads the Austrian delegation, made up of representatives of the country’s leading companies, that is currently visiting Moscow. On Tuesday, he met with Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev.
"The decisions led to constraints in bilateral relations," Mitterlehner said commenting on the introduction of the EU sanctions and Russia's countermeasures. "These decisions have been made not at our level. We want to take measures against such [a state of affairs] in [our] relations."
In August 2014, in response to the Western restrictive measures, Moscow announced a one-year food embargo on products originating in states that imposed sanctions against it. The ban has since been extended for another year.
