Russia: US sanctions on science centers are inadmissible
Moscow, Aug 27 (Prensa Latina) Russia on Thursday called the US sanctions on five scientific centers as inadmissible, including one deeply involved in the research of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Speaking to the press, Russian spokesman Dmitri Peskov rejected Washington's accusations about alleged involvement of Russian scientific centers in developing biological weapons, and called these actions as completely nonsense.
Recently, the US Department of Commerce announced some sanctions against Russian Institute for Scientific Research of Organic Chemistry and Technology and four other centers, including the 48th research center of the Ministry of Defense which contributed to Sputnik V.
The United States has an addiction to sanctions. It is a theater of the absurd. We strongly reject statements about alleged involvement of our organizations in the development of chemical and bacteriological weapons. It is total nonsense, said Peskov.
He also denounced the use of illegal methods to compete with one of the institutions that helped Russia to present the first Covid-19 vaccine in the world on 7/11.
The Russian ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, asserted that Donald Trump´s accusations against Russia are malicious and false.
