The Kremlin considers continued US sanctions rhetoric counterproductive, harmful to the interests of Russia and the United States, and potentially harming the interests of other countries.

The Kremlin continues to vehemently oppose any new US sanctions as harmful not only to Russian-US ties but also against the interests of third countries, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

“We consider this continued sanctions rhetoric counterproductive, harmful to the interests of our two countries, and potentially of course harming the interests of other countries,” Peskov told reporters.

Asked about potential retaliatory measures, he noted that “we also consider any hypothetical reasoning as inappropriate.”

“It is counterproductive to talk about any eventual response measures without having clear input on adopted or not adopted decisions,” Peskov said.
