MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia would consider any new chemical weapons-related sanctions imposed by the United States to be illegal, a Kremlin spokesman said on Wednesday.

The U.S. State Department said on Tuesday it would impose additional sanctions on Russia after Moscow failed to give reasonable assurances it would not use chemical weapons after a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England.

“We consider restrictions imposed by the United States against Russia illegal,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

    Sorry, Vladimir, the United States has a right to consider chemical weapons which, in this case, come in the form of such weapons available from the over-production of chemical weapons by the USSR and continued by primary former Soviet state, Russia. Chemical weapons and the dumping of their excesses have polluted Kazakhstan and have turned the Aral Sea, adjacent to Kazakhstan, into a polluted lake. Kazakhstan was the Soviet center for chemical weapon production and most likely still is. Therefore the poison gas weapons used by Saddam Hussein in his dictatorial prime, Iran likewise, and any other Soviet then Russian trading partners or military weapons clients. The Syrian dictatorship of present is an example. Such clients have also received 21st century Russian high-tech. military weapons, in the same spirit that the U.S.A. sends agricultural products and medicines to financially struggling nations. Practically all Chinese military weapons are copied from its neighbor, Russia.
