WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th February, 2020) Russia's Embassy in the United States on Thursday denounced fresh US "non-proliferation" sanctions against Russian weapons-manufacturing companies as part of an "upsurge of Russophobia" and an attempt to promote narrow commercial interests.
A document published in the Federal Register explained that the sanctions were imposed over a determination that a number of foreign persons have engaged in activities that warrant measures pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran, North Korea and Syria Nonproliferation Act.
The Embassy blasted US authorities for failing to provide any official evidence against the Russian companies and stressed that it was a prerogative of the UN Security Council to impose restrictions on such grounds.
