MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday sternly criticized a law backed by the U.S. Congress over Ukraine and said Washington was doing its utmost to "destroy the carcass of cooperation" between the two countries.

The ministry added in a statement that U.S. authorities were unable to abandon outdated phobias in their dealings with Russia and warned that the law could undermine bilateral relations.

U.S.-Russian relations are at their lowest since the Cold War over the Ukraine crisis.
