MOSCOW - New US sanctions against state-owned enterprises in Belarus are "an act of aggression" and a blow to companies with ties to Russia, the former Soviet republic's prime minister said on Monday.

The United States imposed sanctions last Thursday against four firms owned or controlled by a company linked to President Alexander Lukashenko in response to his government's crackdown on the political opposition.

"I believe that this is an act of aggression against the Belarussian people, a blow to the Belarussian economy, especially sectors which are linked to the Russian Federation through cooperation," Belarussian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich said at a meeting in Moscow.
