The decision of US administration to impose new sanctions against Russian companies undermines the prospects for multilateral cooperation in combating ISIS and other terrorist groups that threaten all countries, including the United States.

This is stated on the Russian Foreign Ministry Facebook page, with reference to the official representative Maria Zakharova.

"The decision of the US Administration to impose restrictive measures against a number of Russian organizations, including those related to aircraft construction and the training of flight specialists, is puzzling and disappointing. Of course, this new portion of sanctions does not cause us any serious problems, but the Americans did not even name the reasons, but merely referred to their legislation prohibiting them to cooperate with Iran and Syria themselves, "the report said.

Zakharova also noted that this step "does not completely coincide with the words sounding from Washington on the priority of the fight against terrorism in Syria."
