New U.S. Treasury sanctions on North Korea “destructive”: Moscow

Russian foreign ministry says new sanctions will only "undermine progress"

Moscow on Thursday reacted to new U.S. sanctions against a Russian company and individual, with the country's foreign ministry issuing a statement calling them "destructive".
