Moscow said on Friday Switzerland had imposed restrictions on military exports to Russia over events in Ukraine which were counterproductive and not in line with the country's policy of neutrality.

"The restrictions imposed by Bern on a number of spheres of cooperation are unjustified and counterproductive," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
