Russia opposes unilateral sanctions against Iran, placed on the Islamic Republic for its refusal to cease its uranium enrichment program, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday according to a Reuters report.

Speaking of unilateral sanctions on Russian television, Lavrov said "they are a violation, even without mentioning the legal aspect of the issue." 

Lavrov's announcement came despite the fact that earlier this week, Russia announced it would be canceling a deal to supply Iran with S-300 missles because of UN sanctions passed against the Islamic Republic in June.
