MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. Russia has suspended its agreement with the United States on cooperation in nuclear and energy research as a countermeasure against Washington’s unfriendly steps, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The step has been taken in response to restrictions imposed by the United States on Russia in the nuclear energy sector. In 2014 a notification was received from Washington, saying that the US suspended such cooperation with Russia over the Ukraine developments," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary released on Wednesday.
"In the current situation, Russia suspends the agreement as a countermeasure to US unfriendly activities," the commentary said.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry pointed out that the United States by its decision to freeze cooperation with Russia over the Ukraine events "has in fact frozen ties in sciences and technology in all the spheres fixed in the agreement and made impossible implementation of the projects that are of interest for both countries."
Earlier in the day, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev put his signature under a resolution suspending the Russian-US nuclear and energy research agreement.
