    MOSCOW, February 19, 2004. /RIA Novosti correspondent Alevtina Shchepetina/ - The Russian President's aide for economic issues Andrei Illarionov has officially warned the European Union against exercising pressure on Russia when ratifying the Kyoto Protocol.

    When speaking at a conference in Moscow on Thursday, he said, "I would like to officially warn representatives of the European Union to refrain from moves that can be inevitably considered as unfriendly steps towards the Russian Federation. The attempt to exercise pressure on Russia when ratifying the Kyoto Protocol may be viewed as EU's direct intervention in the domestic affairs of the Russian Federation".
