Moscow reacts US sanctions against Russian bank

Economy A- A A+

The sanctions the US imposed against Russia’s Eurofinance Mosnarbank for working with Venezuela are illegitimate, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a commentary on Wednesday.

"Once again Washington decided to use sanctions, this time by blacklisting a Russian bank, which gives the Venezuelan government the opportunity to work normally with foreign partners. Moreover, calling Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro "illegitimate" leader, the United States not only forgets the fact that he is a nationally elected president of a sovereign state, but also the illegitimacy of decisions on sanctions taken outside the framework of the UN Security Council," the ministry said.
