MOSCOW, 10 June (BelTA) – Russia's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote in her Telegram channel that the calls to introduce sanctions against Belarus' industry giants are an act of extraordinary wickedness, BelTA has learned.

“These enterprises employ Belarusians. How can you ask anyone to target people, your compatriots who have been creating a domestic product for years, decades?” she asked.

“Is there a possibility that the American sanctions against Belarusian enterprises are already on the table and they just needed someone who could voice ‘numerous requests of workers to raise prices for staples? It is an unprecedented wickedness,” Maria Zakharova noted.
