"As a manifestation of censorship based on political motives," Zakharova told the Russian Kommersant FM radio station when asked about Moscow's opinion about the new sanctions.
"The Kiev regime is using all methods of force to influence its citizens: from a ban on music and literature to military aggression against its people," the spokeswoman added.
Zakharova added that against the backdrop of Kiev's measures both the United States and the European Union kept silence.
Kiev has imposed several rounds of anti-Moscow sanctions citing Russia's alleged meddling in the Ukrainian affairs. Russian officials have repeatedly refuted the allegations of both Kiev and its Western partners. Commenting on Tuesday's decision of the Ukrainian authorities, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow regarded Kiev's decision to expand sanctions against Russian individuals and legal entities as another manifestation of an unfriendly and short-sighted policy against Russia.
