Russian FM blasts sanctions by US, EU

Sanctions that the European Union and the United States imposed on Russia serve for the bloc and the country to draw attention from their own problems, Moscow's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated on Wednesday.

In an interview with the Vesti radio station, she elaborated that the issues the western countries intend to distract the public from are "related to chemical weapons," and the issuance of COVID-19 "vaccination passports," as well as the "vaccine supply."

The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken unveiled the day before that Washington passed additional sanctions on Moscow, accusing Russia of using "a chemical weapon" during the "attempted assassination" of Alexey Navalny.
