Russia will cope with the latest round of U.S. sanctions, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

Speaking at the Russian parliament, Medvedev said: "There is no doubt that we will cope with this pressure. We’ve learned how to do it."

Elsewhere in his speech at an annual address at the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, Medvedev said: "At the end of the day, we will turn all those actions to the benefit of our own economy.  But we will not forget those who keep pushing forward that anti-Russia policy."

Medvedev denounced unspecified people "in both America and Europe” who he said are portraying Russia as an enemy.  He added:  "They have been trying to push us out of global politics, global economic relations. And the latest decisions by the US administration in that matter are an attempt to fight against us using an unfair competition."

Recent U.S. sanctions against Russia targeted more than two dozen tycoons, companies, officials, and political figures seen as close to President Vladimir Putin -- part of an attempt to punish Russia for what the U.S. treasury secretary called its "malign activity around the globe."
