MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday the visit by United States Senator Chris Murphy to Croatia, when he tried to talk the Croatian authorities out of cooperation with Russia, was aimed at pressuring the country's authorities.
“On the background of sanctions against Russia, Washington has recently been exerting growing pressure on South-East European states, including Croatia, to maximally hamper our cooperation with countries of that region in the energy and military technical spheres,” the ministry said. “We think such barefaced pressure is inadmissible and is running counter to generally recognized norms of international cooperation.”
“Along with obvious political motivation of such actions, it is easy to see attempts at unfair competition, i.e. attempts to use the crisis in relations with Russia in order to consolidate positions of US businesses, to expand their zone of influence in South-East Europe,” the ministry stressed.
