MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s deputy foreign minister said on Wednesday Moscow did not understand new United States sanctions against Russia over Syria and Washington should stop playing “geo-political games”, RIA news agency reported.
“It is clear that this is a new, complicated moment in relations,” RIA quoted Sergei Ryabkov as saying.
The United States has sanctioned 10 targets, including a Russian bank, for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the U.S. Treasury Department said on Wednesday.
