Moscow will consider new possible sanctions by Washington as part of the Salisbury case as illegal, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday. reports citing Reuters.

"We view these restrictions slapped by the US against Russia as illegal and therefore we will treat similar steps in the same way if they follow," Peskov said when commenting on Moscow’s reaction to new US sanctions, which may be introduced in connection with the Skripal poisoning case.

Moscow is in favor of a dialogue with Washington to solve the existing problems but so far it sees no bright prospects for normalizing bilateral relations, he said.

According to Peskov, it is up to the Americans themselves to decide whether the domestic political situation in the US improved or deteriorated after the elections, and Kremlin has "no desire whatsoever to intervene there."

"One can assume with a high degree of confidence that, of course, no bright prospects for normalizing Russian-American relations are in the offing," the Kremlin spokesman said when asked about relations between the two countries’ leaders after the November 6 midterm elections in the US.

"That does not mean, however, that we seek no dialogue, that we want no dialogue, because we have numerous problems that require Russian-American intercommunication. These are the problems of strategic stability and arms control. These problems will not be solved by themselves without maintaining a dialogue," Peskov concluded.
