The US sanctions against several research institutes of the Russian Ministry of Defense, which, among other things, are engaged in a vaccine against coronavirus, are considered unfair and illegal.
This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, says RG.
According to her, American restrictions against military scientists are a form of unfair competition, which harms not only the Russian Federation.
“It is outrageous, first of all, that the same scientists and specialists who have been tirelessly working on the development of a Russian vaccine against COVID-19 for the past few months have come under the sanctions. successfully – over a cure for a disease that has already killed more than 180 thousand US citizens”, — Zakharova said in a widespread comment.
She recalled that the arguments of Washington, according to which the research institutes that fell under the sanctions were allegedly involved in the program of chemical and biological weapons, were not supported by concrete evidence.
