US sanctions is another wave of Russophobia: Russian Embassy

Moscow warns about the latest US sanctions regarding the Russian organizations shows “another wave of Russophobia”, the Russian Embassy said in the statement.

Thus, Washington tries «to ensure narrowly defined interests on the international market of defense technologies.»

«We have once again become witnesses to the US efforts to spin the sanctions spiral against Russia,» the embassy said and added that «In this approach, we see another wave of Russophobia.»

The thing is that the Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise, the military-industrial corporation Scientific and Production Association of Mechanical Engineering and the Instrument Design Bureau were sanctioned by the US Department of State since they allegedly breach the American laws on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against Iran, North Korea, and Syria.

«We would want to remind our colleagues in Washington that only the UN Security Council has the right to impose restrictions over such issues. Serious grounds are needed for that. The US Administration has once again failed to provide any evidence,» the embassy highlighted.
