MOSCOW – Russia lashed out Saturday at the latest round of Ukraine-related sanctions imposed by the European Union, saying they endanger the fight against international terrorism, and accused the United States of spreading flagrant lies about Russia’s alleged involvement in the downing of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine.

The EU sanctions, announced on Friday, impose travel bans and asset freezes on 15 people, including the head of Russia’s Federal Security Service and the head of the agency’s department overseeing international operations and intelligence.

Four members of Russia’s national security council are also on the list.
