President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades stressed that Cyprus is quite small to decide about Russia, noting though that principles should be the first to take into consideration.

In a statement on the doorstep of the European Council in Brussels and replying to a question regarding Cyprus’ position for the possibility of EU sanctions against Russia, President Anastasiades said that “we are quite small to decide about Russia, but of course we have to take into consideration that firstly it is the principles, second is those steps we might take which will not have a retrospect in our own economy”
