    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed indignation over the new sanctions attacks of the United States against Russia under the pretext of the Ukrainian crisis.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed indignation to US State Secretary John Kerry over the new US sanctions against Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

    On Tuesday, US authorities introduced sanctions against eleven Russian and international electronics firms over their alleged links to the Ukrainian conflict, after sanctioning dozens more last week.

    "The Russian minister expressed indignation over the new sanctions attacks of the United States against Russia under the pretext of the Ukrainian crisis. It was underlined that the normal cooperation, including in resolving regional conflicts, cooperation for which the administration of Barack Obama regularly asks in working contacts, is impossible without basic decency," the statement read.
