Lukoil CEO says possible US sanctions not to split Russia
MOSCOW, Feb 9 (PRIME) -- The U.S. will not be able to sow discord in Russia with its sanctions, Vagit Alekperov, CEO of Russian oil major Lukoil, told reporters on Friday.
УI donТt fully understand the target of the Kremlin Report, but it is difficult to sow discord because we all work together actively,Ф he said.
