Beijing: China firmly opposes Britain's decision to include five Chinese firms in sanctions imposed on Russia, and has lodged solemn representations with the British side, the Chinese embassy in London said on Thursday.

The sanctions were a "unilateral act" without any basis in international law, a spokesperson from the embassy said in a statement.
