Russia irked by 'Iron Curtain' sanctions

EU 'under US thumb' claims Moscow

(ANSA) - Rome, April 29 - Russia on Tuesday slammed new US and EU sanctions against Moscow's actions in Ukraine as reminiscent of the Iron Curtain.
    Moscow said the EU was "under Washington's thumb" and should be "ashamed" of increasing its sanctions.
    Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov also said US sanctions could hurt its hi-tech sector.
    The Kremlin repeated it had no plans to invade east Ukraine where pro-Russia activists have seized buildings in more than a dozen towns, leading to deadly clashes.
