Cuba condemns new sanctions announced against Russia
Havana, Mar 4 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Thursday condemned the recent sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States and the European Union, described by Moscow as 'unaccepatble.'
These sanctions, Rodriguez tweeted, are a clear violation of International Law and the UN Charter and an interference in that fraternal country's internal affairs.
For his part, Kremlim Spokesman Dimitri Peskov described those restrictions as 'unacceptable because they significantly damage the already deplorable relations,' both with the European Union and the United States.
The new sanctions against Russian citizens and organizations are an interference in the country's internal affairs, Peskov said in a recent statement.
They come after European and US accusations that link Moscow's Executive with the alleged poisoning of opposition blogger Alexei Navalny.
In response to them, the head of the press office of the Russian presidency called on Washington and the European bloc to share the evidence they have to solve the case.
'If Americans and Europeans were hiding this supposed evidence they say they have, they would be covering up the true reasons of this whole story and hampering the intentions to discover what really happened,' he commented.
