New Delhi, March 3 : Russia on Wednesday threatened to retaliate against the sanctions imposed on it by the US and the EU for allegedly poisoning an opposition leader.
In a statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the US administration, teaming up with the EU, has made a hostile move towards Russia by announcing new sanctions “to punish Moscow”.
The US and EU on Tuesday had imposed sanctions on Russia over the alleged poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny with Novichok nerve agent and his subsequent arrest and detention.
Reacting sharply to the anti-Russian sanctions, Kremlin said that the move indicated that the White House is again trying to cultivate the image of an external enemy while it is badly enmeshed in its own domestic problems at home.
Describing the US policy as devoid of “logic and common sense”, Zakharova said that it is increasingly aggravating bilateral relations that Washington has already brought to a complete halt.
In a stern comment, she said that absurdity triumphs when the reason behind the sanctions is based on Alexey Navalny’s alleged “poisoning” with some toxic “chemical warfare” agent.
