"This seems to be a continuation of the old US policy, which is based on unilateral sanctions, which we consider totally unacceptable," said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin.

Earlier on Thursday, the US Treasury Department announced sanctions against three individuals, five ships and Maritime Assistance LLC for allegedly providing jet fuel to Russian forces in Syria.
