MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, commenting on new U.S. sanctions imposed on Friday on a Russian bank over North Korea-related activities, said U.S. attempts to pressure Russia do not work.

“Even U.S. politicians, who suffer from a particularly sharp form of Russophobia, have started to admit that attempts to put pressure on Russia do not work,” Ryabkov said in a statement on Friday.
