SIMFEROPOL (QHA) -

First deputy Premier of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliev said he would sue the Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal.

The satatement comes after Temirgaliev was mentioned in an advertisement of The Wall Street Journal that promotes Dow Jones services that can protect investors from the consequences of the sanctions.

“The fact that I am involved in the advertisement surprised me, to say the least. It is a good reason to sue the Dow Jones. We will consult the lawyers on the issue”- Temirgaliev said.

To recall, UN and US have imposed sanctions against Russian politicians, inner circle of Russian President Vladimir Putin, over the recent events in Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea. The sanctions include ban from entering the US and the EU countries and blocking the bank accounts.
