Russia vows to retaliate against new US sanctions


Moscow The Kremlin on Thursday vowed to retaliate against"unacceptable" new US sanctions against Russia over its alleged role in a nerve agent attack on a former spy in Britain. The action by the US State Department is the latest salvo in a series of disputes between the rival powers and comes less than a month after US President Donald Trump met his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The State Department said Wednesday the new sanctions were in response to"the use of a Novichok nerve agent in an attempt to assassinate UK citizen Sergei Skripal". (AFP)
