Russia: Second round of US sanctions does not intimidate Russia — Zakharova

Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that a second round of sanctions announced by the USA on Wednesday would not intimidate Russia. She was speaking at a weekly briefing in Moscow on Thursday. The US State Department announced a second package of anti-Russian sanctions for Russia's alleged incompliance with the US Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare... Еще Elimination Act. Zakharova stated that Russia had destroyed its chemical weapons arsenal “long ago” and that this “was thoroughly checked and confirmed by OPCW representatives.” She also claimed that “the USA has not complied with the obligations to destroy its arsenal so far and persistently delay it.” Speaking about the recent accusations by France and Germany over Russia's alleged involvement in the downing of a OSCE drone above the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, she rebuked both European countries for drawing conclusions « without any grounds and, certainly, without waiting for the outcome of the incident's inquiry.”
