The U.S. decision on the introduction of restrictive measures against several Russian organizations, including those associated with the aircraft industry and training of specialists, is puzzling and frustrating. This is stated in the commentary of the Russian foreign Ministry.

“No serious problems we have this new batch of sanctions, of course, does not cause, but Americans are not even named the reasons, but merely referred to its legislation prohibiting them to cooperate with Iran and Syria,” the report says.

This step, as emphasized in the Russian foreign Ministry, does not fit with the statements of Washington on the priority of combating terrorism, including building a nest on Syrian territory. This decision, on the contrary, completely contrary to this aim, undermines the prospects for establishing a broad multilateral cooperation in order to defeat terrorist groups that threaten all countries, including the United States.

“Official Washington again goes on about those who made it their main occupation consistent destruction of Russian-American cooperation. These figures have been searching for enemies where they really exist. The security interests of the United States, this approach clearly does not meet”, — said the foreign Minister.

On March 25, the United States imposed two-year sanctions against eight Russian companies from-for violations of U.S. law on non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction regarding Syria, Iran and North Korea. What kind of claims are available to companies has not been specified.
