MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia accused the United States on Saturday of illegally imposing sanctions on some Russian military firms which Washington says were cooperating with Iran and Syria.
"This is by far not the first time the U.S. resorts to illegal attempts to spread its internal legislation on foreign companies and force them to abide by the U.S. rules," Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
It said the U.S. decision was taken on Friday against several private individuals and companies in Russia, including state arms trader Rosoboronexport.
Rosoboronexport, one of the world's biggest arms traders, has recently won control of the Russian firm VSMPO-Avisma, the world's largest titanium producer. It is a key supplier of titanium parts to U.S. aviation giant Boeing and Europe's EADS.
