Vladimir Chizhov, Russian Ambassador to the EU

Vladimir Chizhov says the EU should think twice before adopting further economic sanctions against his country, warning it may end up costing Europe more than Russia.

Meanwhile, Chizhov lays out Putin's ambitions in Ukraine: the country must adopt a new constitution, paving the way for a federal state with more power to the regions.
