    Russia's deputy prime minister said that both sanctions and Moscow's countermeasures will soon become a thing of the past.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow should operate under the assumption that both anti-Russia sanctions and countermeasures will soon lose their effectiveness, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said Friday.

    "Perhaps it is time to understand that the sanctions will soon cease to have effect, and so will counter-sanctions," Shuvalov said at the Gaidar Forum.

    He noted that Russia's countermeasures expire on December 31, 2017.
