MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has recommended that American politicians consider sanctioning themselves for what they have done throughout the world.

“Given what the US has done across the globe over the recent years, the Senate and Congress should think about imposing sanctions on themselves, and on their own politicians. They have wreaked so much destruction worldwide. And has any of them been punished?” she asked journalists at a briefing on Wednesday.

“The issue of how and when the American public will look into their own crimes on the global arena” must be brought up, the diplomat stressed. “Especially, the mere presence of an American armed contingent in a sovereign state without its consent. This is a crime from the standpoint of international law,” she went on to point out.

On Tuesday, a group of US senators presented a bill, which proposes introducing sanctions against 24 agents of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), whom Washington accuses of being linked to the November 2018 Kerch Strait incident, when Moscow detained 24 Ukrainian seamen for breaching the Russian border.

The senators also included in the bill restrictions on transactions with Russian debt instruments and on energy projects by Russian state companies abroad, and even on certain banks.
