Russia said on Saturday that additional sanctions imposed by the European Union over Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis would hamper cooperation over security issues and undermine the fight against terrorism and organized crime. "The additional sanction list is direct evidence that the EU countries have set a course for fully scaling down cooperation with Russia over the issues of international and regional security," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "(This) includes the fight against the proliferation of weapon of mass destruction, terrorism, organized crime and other new challenges and dangers." The European Union on Saturday added 15 Russians and Ukrainians and 18 organizations to its sanctions list over the crisis in Ukraine. The chiefs of Russia's FSB security service and foreign intelligence service as well as a number of other senior Russian officials were included in the sanctions list.

Russia said on Saturday that the United States bore some responsibility for the conflict in Ukraine though its backing for the Kiev government. "The United States continues to push Kiev into the forceful repression of (Ukraine's) Russian-speaking population's discontent. There is one conclusion - the Obama administration has some responsibility both for the internal conflict in Ukraine and its severe consequences," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It was responding to the White House's accusation that Russian President Vladimir Putin was "culpable" in the downing of a Malaysian plane over a pro-Moscow rebel-controlled war zone in Ukraine.
