Kremlin condemns nerve agent attack sanctions as ‘draconian’

В РФ назвали санкции США Kremlin condemns nerve agent attack sanctions as ‘draconian’

Chillingly, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Russian Federation would regard any United States move to curb the activities of its banks as a "declaration of economic war" and added the country would retaliate.

News about the upcoming USA sanctions has thrown Russian ruble to a record low since 2016.

Speaking on a weekly TV talk show, Siluanov said the new USA sanctions, some of which could restrict purchases of Russian government bonds, were "unpleasant but not fatal".

This month, the Senate introduced legislation that would expand sanctions even further to target Russia's top state-controlled banks and freeze their dollar transactions.

Peskov said Trump's criticism was aimed at promoting sales of U.S. LNG to Europe and the Kremlin considered this to be a manifestation of unfair competition.

Rain fury in Kerala: UAE airlines suspend flights to Kochi
Palakkad, which borders Tamil Nadu, also received more rains, aggravating the already flooded parts of the district. From 1979, Kerala has been claiming that the dam is unsafe and has developed leaks following an natural disaster .

The US State Department announced new sanctions on Wednesday last week. The law was applied against North Korea in March, for example, after leader Kim Jong Un's brother was killed with the chemical agent VX in Malaysia a year ago.

Second. Russia by the end of 12 months will provide credible assurances that it will no longer participate in "such activities" (probably talking about his involvement in the poisoning of Russian ex-spy of the Violinist and his daughter Julia - Ed.).

British Prime Minister Theresa May accused Russian Federation of flouting its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention by running an undeclared chemical weapons program.

Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned by a nerve agent in March in the southern English city of Salisbury.

The Skripals have since recovered from the alleged assassination attempt. Her partner, who found the perfume bottle and unknowingly gave it to her, is recovering. Russian Federation repeatedly refuted any statements of its involvement in the Skripals incident. Western nations say that Novichok was originally developed in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
