Russia Vows to Continue Responding to ‘Unfriendly, Dangerous’ US Actions

Russia will respond to possible new unfriendly US actions, the country’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday, adding that Moscow is ready for the normalization of dialogue with the United States.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, Donald Trump signed into law a new bill imposing additional sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. The sanctions target Russia’s defense, intelligence, mining, shipping and railway industries and restricts dealings with Russian banks and energy companies. The law also limits the US president’s ability to ease any sanctions on Russia by requiring Congressional approval to lift any restrictions.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry described the new sanctions as “absolutely illegitimate” and responded with its countermeasures, suspending the use of all US Embassy warehouses and its compound in Moscow. Russia also mandated that the US cut the size of its diplomatic staff in Russia by 755 people by September 1.

“[Sergei] Lavrov has noted that the law on sanctions against Russia introduced by the United States became the next link in a chain of the unfriendly and dangerous steps for the international stability, which had seriously affected the bilateral cooperation. Of course, such actions, including the illegal capturing of our diplomatic property since December, could not be left unanswered. We will keep it that way,” the Russian Foreign Ministry statement on the results of the meeting between Lavrov and US State Secretary Rex Tillerson read.

    I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that US sanctions against Russia have been condemned by many people and gov’ts around the world.It is the USA that is the problem not Russia.
    The same with Venezuela and Iran.It is US Imperialism that is the problem not these countries.Also in the DPRK it is the Yankee troops occupying Korea that is the main problem, not the DPRK.There can be no peace with US Imperialism anywhere in the world.
