All Sanctions Imposed Against Russian Companies Illegal – Moscow

Sputnik – 28.03.2017

MOSCOW – All sanctions imposed against Russian companies, including Rosneft, are illegal, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Aleksei Meshkov said Tuesday.

“Only one thing can be said about this – all sanctions taken against Russian companies are illegal. I would propose to this court to familiarize itself with the UN charter. Only the UN Security Council has the political right to announce sanctions against countries and foreign companies,” Meshkov told reporters.

Earlier in the day, the European General Court in Luxembourg ruled that the sanctions adopted by the EU Council against Rosneft were valid.

Rosneft commented on the sanctions by saying that they are groundless and politicized.
