Kremlin: U.S. sanctions addiction well-known around the world
The United States is addicted to sanctions, and hardly anyone approves of this in the world, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, responding to a statement by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Earlier, Pompeo spoke about possible consequences over the situation with Russian blogger Alexey Navalny.
"As for the U.S. sanctions addiction, it is difficult to name it in another way, it is well-known to everyone, to all countries of the world, and hardly anyone approves of such activity," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
Yesterday Pompeo said that the U.S. is building a coalition against the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline. "We hope that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline won’t be completed. We’re working to make sure we build out a coalition that prevents that from happening," he told Bild.
