Rosneft Trading SA, a Swiss-based brokerage, was accused by Washington of handling over 70 per cent of Venezuela's oil exports bypassing US sanctions against the Latin American country, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"Such restrictions, which we consider illegal under international law, can in no way affect our bilateral relations with Venezuela", Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced on Wednesday.

The official also noted that Rosneft Trading is considering legal moves against the ruling.
