Russia angry over US fining it $50,000 a day

Published: 01.17.13, 12:48 / Israel News

Russia's Foreign Ministry has criticized a US judge ruling fining Russia $50,000 a day over the failure to return historical books and documents to a Jewish group.

The collection, which includes tens of thousands of religious books and manuscripts, is held by Russia's State Library and the Russian military archive. The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday called the ruling "an absolutely unlawful and provocative decision" and threatened a "tough response" if US authorities try to seize any Russian property.
