Comment by the Information and Press Department regarding the expansion of US sanctions against Russia

Friday, 26 January 2018 13:10

While continuing its attempts to pressure Russia, the United States has introduced additional sanctions against a number of Russian individuals as well as companies under the far-fetched pretext of Russia’s involvement in the Ukrainian crisis. Washington still entertains the illusion that the denial of US visas and trade bans can intimidate Russia or force it to abandon its independent foreign policy and the protection of its national interests.

If the preference of the US authorities is to sever economic and other ties with Russia, then Russia has the right to provide a response to this. However, Washington strategists should consider the possibility that their senseless sanctions policy, which has not produced and will not produce any result but will only end in financial losses for the US business, will only demonstrate US impotence to the world. Certainly, it will not help it hide its involvement in the Maidan revolt in Kiev and the kindling of the civil war in Ukraine.

It is notable that several hours before these new sanctions were announced US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman published an article in The Moscow Times expressing a desire to improve Russian-US relations. As we see now, Washington has not supported its ambassador.
