Selin ATAY-TDO- The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted harshly to the US as US added 5 ships to its sanctions list, along with a shipping company that supplies fuel to Russian troops in their fight with terrorism in Syria.
“The US has touted itself as a supporter of terrorism. The fight against terrorists in the field will continue, even though the United States is a sponsor of terrorists and has illegally occupied parts of sovereign Syria," the ministry said.
The US did not bother to hide its true intentions when imposing sanctions on Sovfracht, citing the situation in Crimea, "the masks have fallen. This step is aimed directly at preventing the complete annihilation of terrorists on Syrian soil," the ministry said.
Recently, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that US imposed sanctions on two companies of Russia, 3 Russian nationals and 5 ships.
