GENEVA, 25 April. /TASS/. Russia sees no justification for what happened on Monday of a new expansion of US sanctions against Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was stated on Tuesday by Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Gennady Gatilov.
