‘Further US sanctions to be declaration of economic war’

Moscow: Russia warned yesterday that if the US followed through with threats to impose further harsh economic sanctions it would be seen as a “declaration of economic war”.

The warning by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev came after Washington unveiled a raft of new sanctions against Russia over its alleged use of the Novichok nerve agent against a former double agent which Britain has blamed on Moscow.

The incident, which took place in Salisbury in southern England in March, triggered a major diplomatic crisis despite Russia’s denial of any role.

Announced late on Wednesday, the first set of sanctions, which will take effect in just under two weeks, impose a ban on the export to Russia of “national security sensitive” US technologies.

Until now such exports had been previously allowed on a case-by-case basis, with a senior State Department official saying the move could cut off hundreds of millions of dollars worth of exports to Russia. “And we must absolutely respond to this war. By economic means, by political means and if necessary by other means,” he added.
