Russia Regrets US, Canada's Course of Full Destruction of Relations - Foreign Ministry

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th March, 2019) Moscow regrets that the United States and Canada continue to pursue a disastrous course towards the complete destruction of bilateral relations with Russia, and reiterates that the sanctions pressure is fruitless, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.

The US and Canada announced earlier in the day new rounds of sanctions against Russia over the Kerch Strait incident provoked by Ukraine in November 2018.

"We express our regret that in the American and Canadian capitals they continue to pursue a disastrous course towards the complete destruction of bilateral relations with Russia, which are already in a very deplorable state as a result of the heavy Russophobia that swept Washington and Ottawa," the ministry said in a statement.

"They are trying again to justify the new restrictions by the allegedly aggressive actions of Russia against Ukraine, and the 'illegal annexation of the Crimea,' this time adding baseless accusations of 'unjustified use of force' in the Kerch Strait," the ministry said adding that the sanctions, no matter how many, do not and will not bring the desired results for the United States and Canada.
