Russia condemns new EU sanctions

|By:, SA News Editor

Russia has responded angrily to the EU's new additional sanctions saying they will hamper cooperation on security issues and undermine the fight against terrorism and organized crime.

The new agreement imposes the first European economic sanctions on Russia, but stops short of including technology restrictions on the country's gas sector.

Russia's Foreign Ministry also accuses the U.S., which has already imposed its own sanctions on Moscow, of adding to the Ukrainian crisis by supporting the pro-Western government in Kiev.
