Moscow condemns EU renewal of illegitimate sanctions on Syria

Moscow, SANA- Russian Foreign Ministry condemned on Thursday European Union’s renewal of coercive illegitimate sanctions imposed on Syria.

“Russia is disappointed because the European Union, like the US, has deliberately renewed the unilateral coercive measures imposed on Syria” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova said during a press conference.

She added that Moscow noted so many times that those measures don’t only affect the Syrian economy, but they also prevent the Syrian people from getting the essential medicines, medical equipment and humanitarian items.

An official source at the Foreign and expatriates Ministry said on May 28th that Syria has affirmed that the European Union’s decision to renew the coercive measures imposed on the country unveils the falseness of the stances and statements of its officials and uncovers the hypocrisy which has become a basic feature for the European policies.
