Russia is asking the United States to impose sanctions on itself for violations in Yugoslavia and Iraq

Moscow, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zagarova, today demanded that the United States impose sanctions for the crimes committed in Yugoslavia and Iraq and the millions of dead and maimed around the world.

Since when does the United States respect laws? His behavior at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is pure arbitrariness,” the spokeswoman wrote in her Telegram profile.

Zararova noted that after imposing sanctions “for what you did in Yugoslavia and Iraq, for the millions of dead and maimed,” then the United States would be able to utter a word of law.

On Sunday, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the Geneva summit was held between US President Joseph Biden; And his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin did not make “any change” in Washington’s sanctions policy against Moscow.

According to Psaki, “the law requires” that the United States continue to consider imposing new restrictions on Russia regarding the use of chemical weapons. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan announced that his government is preparing new sanctions in the case of opponent Alexei Navalny, who is imprisoned in this country for breaking national laws, and against Russian companies building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Regarding possible measures, the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, said that it is sad that Washington is going on a path that does not lead to any positive results, Sputnik news agency reported.

He pointed out that sanctions do not stabilize relations and are not part of the signal that was launched during the Russian-American summit.
