MOSCOW, Mar 03 (Xinhua): The Russian Foreign Ministry urged the U.S. administration "not to play with fire" after Washington on Tuesday announced sanctions against Russian individuals and entities over the alleged poisoning of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.

In an online statement, the foreign ministry called the U.S. sanctions "a hostile anti-Russian attack" under an absurd pretext.

"Entangled in its own internal problems, the White House is again trying to cultivate the image of an external enemy. We have repeatedly commented on this American policy, which is devoid of logic and meaning and only more and more worsens bilateral relations," it read.
