Russia has repeatedly warned the United States about the response measures to sanctions, more do it in Moscow do not see the point, said on Wednesday Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
“All signals were sent at all levels, there are no additions to any of these signals,” Ryabkov said in an interview with Interfax, answering a question about whether Moscow is preparing a response to the bill of the US Congress that contains extended sanctions against the Russian Federation .
According to him, “the authors of such initiatives have so bloated in the political sense of the word that they do not see, hear or listen to anyone.”
“Therefore, we will no longer cast pearls. Let them turn to the documents that they have. I hope that they still have a strong enough apparatus both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, which collects information, monitors signals and statements. If desired, the authors of the bill and its sponsors can easily restore all of this, “added a senior Russian diplomat.
In the evening on Tuesday, July 25, the House of Representatives of the US Congress voted for a bill providing for additional sanctions against Russia, as well as sanctions against Iran and the DPRK.
