Russia FM: Sanctions against Minsk 'illegitimate'

Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Saturday, criticizing sanctions that the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Canada imposed on Belarus, describing the measures as "illegitimate."

"We strongly condemn the new restrictive measures against Belarus ... These sanctions are illegitimate ... [and] inhuman in nature due to their negative impact on the life of ordinary Belarusian citizens," the statement read.

The three countries and the bloc sanctioned Minsk in response to alleged human rights violations.
