Russia accuses US of 'trying to start another Cold War'

London , Fri, 07 Dec 2012 ANI

London, Dec 7 (ANI): Russia has accused the United States of trying to start a new Cold War as the Obama administration has passed a law banning Russians linked to serious human rights abuses from entering America.

Moscow furiously claimed that the new law was evidence of a 'vindictive desire' to damage Russia's world standing.

"Apparently, Washington has forgotten what year this is and still thinks the Cold War is going on," the Russian foreign ministry said on its official Twitter account.

It added that the move would 'adversely affect the prospects of bilateral cooperation' between the two powers, the Telegraph reports.

According to the paper, the law also bars blacklisted Russians from owning US land and using the banking system.

The American law was approved overwhelmingly by the US Senate as part of a raft of measures primarily aimed at restoring normal trade relations between Russia and America.

The package replaced a 38-year-old Act that imposed trade sanctions on the Soviet Union for not allowing Jewish Russians and other persecuted minorities to emigrate from the Communist bloc. (ANI)
