“Chile does not support the sanctions against Russia because, in our view, sanctions must be imposed by the corresponding bodies. In this case, by the Security Council,” Munoz said.
He stressed that Chile has not taken part in the current sanctions against Moscow.
The European Union, alongside the United States and a number of other Western nations, has accused Moscow of interfering with Ukraine's internal affairs, escalating the violence in the country's southeast. Russian authorities have denied involvement in the Ukrainian conflict.
Following the accusations, the West imposed several rounds of sanctions on Russia, targeting several sectors of the Russian economy, including banking, energy and defense, as well as certain individuals. In response, Moscow issued a year-long embargo on food imports from countries that imposed sanctions.
