Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that "illegal" restrictions on Russian companies by Western states ran counter to World Trade Organization rules and told his government to update Russia's strategy in the WTO.

"These measures [sanctions] run counter to WTO principles, to which European colleagues have constantly reiterated their adherence," Putin said.

Russia's economy has been battered by Western sanctions designed to force Moscow to withdraw troops it sent into Ukraine on Feb. 24.
