MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday it regretted a move by the United States to impose new sanctions on Moscow over the poisoning of a former spy in Britain last year, saying it damaged already strained relations, RIA news agency reported.

U.S. media reports late on Thursday said U.S. President Donald Trump had signed an executive order imposing sanctions on Russia over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with a chemical nerve agent in Salisbury last year.
