VIENNA, June 17. /TASS/. Moscow believes Western threats to impose fresh anti-Russian sanctions are flawed and politicized, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov told TASS on Wednesday.

"We did not impose the sanctions, they should be lifted not by us but by those to imposed them," Meshkov noted.

"As for all the talk about tightening sanctions, it confirms that the sanctions were flawed and politicized from the very beginning. They have nothing to do with the issue they were linked to - the situation in Ukraine," the senior diplomat said.

According to media reports, the United States and the European Union have almost agreed more sanctions against Russia. The restrictions relate to both expanding the "black lists" of individuals and imposing sanctions in the financial, energy and defence sectors.
