The United States and Britain threaten the Kremlin with new sanctions
The foreign ministers of the United States and Britain, John Kerry and Boris Johnson, said their countries are considering imposing new economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and the Syrian government, DW reports.
In particular, punitive measures should be taken in response to the events in Aleppo, where hundreds of civilians were killed as a result of air strikes by the Syrian and Russian militaries.
Kerry and Johnson expressed hope in the effectiveness of diplomatic tools to restore peace in Syria, but at the same time they are planning to increase pressure on Moscow and Damascus to stop air strikes on Aleppo.
Previously, it was reported that the sanctions imposed a year ago by Ukraine against Russian legal entities and individuals haven’t been in force for the past month.
