Russia says any new chemical weapons-related sanctions imposed by Washinton against Moscow will be illegal.

This was stated by Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov while talking to reporters in Moscow on Wednesday.

Earlier, the US State Department announced it would impose additional sanctions on Russia after Moscow failed to give reasonable assurances it would not use chemical weapons after a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England.
