Moscow is calling on Washington to launch a joint effort on settling the crisis in Venezuela, ONA reports citing Foreign Ministry of Russia. 

"We are calling on the US to come to its senses and instead of sanctioning foreign companies and banks to finally start a normal joint work under the United Nations’ auspices on contributing to stabilizing the situation in Venezuela based on the principles of international law," the ministry said.

The ministry stressed that all US sanctions imposed without the endorsement of the UN Security Council are illegitimate.
