Earlier in the day, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the G7 states — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States — had decided to extend sanctions against Russia in June.
"The Kremlin's position has not changed: we still believe that this is not an issue on our agenda, however, we do not think that such decisions can have a positive impact on the global economy and on global affairs in general," Peskov told reporters.
Russia has repeatedly refuted the allegations, warning that the Western sanctions are counterproductive and undermine global stability. In response to the restrictive measures, Russia has imposed a food embargo on some products originating in countries that have targeted it with sanctions.
The latest round of Western punitive measures against Russia is up for extension among EU members before the July 31 expiration deadline.
