MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th March, 2019) The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday said there was nothing new or unexpected in the decision of Washington and Ottawa to impose new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine.
In recent years, Washington and Ottawa, using fake pretexts, have been periodically introducing restrictive measures against Russian citizens and organizations. The goal is to put pressure on our country," the ministry said.
Earlier in the day, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on six Russian individuals and eight entities, including shipbuilding and energy companies.
