(MOSCOW) Foreign Ministry Report: They are that the U.S. could impose new sanctions against Russia, said Russian Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov at a press briefing #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.07: Peskov stressed that, although the possible radical sanctions have only been reported by the media, Moscow is still “working out different scenarios on how to better protect the interests of the country, citizens and business.”

Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on new US anti-Russia sanctions: The US Administration, teamed up with the EU, has made a hostile move towards Russia by announcing new sanctions “to punish Moscow.” is.gd/QC7W3T

As a serial violator of international treaties and agreements on arms control and the non-proliferation of weapons, Washington is, by definition, deprived of the moral right to “lecture” others.

Having become enmeshed in its own domestic problems, the White House is again trying to cultivate the image of an external enemy. We have repeatedly commented on this US policy which lacks logic and common sense. It is increasingly aggravating bilateral relations that Washington has already brought to a complete halt.

Absurdity triumphs when the reason behind the sanctions is based on Alexey Navalny’s alleged “poisoning” with some toxic “chemical warfare” agent. This is just a pretext for the continuing undisguised interference in our domestic affairs, and we will not accept this. Based on the principle of reciprocity, we will respond but not necessarily with symmetrical measures.

We can only assume that the US administration does not realise that times have changed and that in the current geopolitical realities attempts to dictate one’s will to others are counterproductive for those who are unable to quit this approach. Instead of instigating a new round of confrontation the US should concentrate on the honest implementation of its commitments, for example, on the destruction of its chemical weapons, weapons Russia hasn’t possessed since 2017.

Apparently, our US colleagues find it difficult to understand and accept the idea that their claims to exclusivity are baseless. Any hopes to impose something on Russia by way of sanctions or other pressure have failed in the past and will fail now. If the US is not ready for an equitable and reasonable dialogue, this is their choice. Regardless of the US’s enthusiasm for sanctions we will continue to consistently and resolutely uphold our national interests and rebuff any aggression. We urge our colleagues not to play with fire.

Kremlin: ‘Russia prepares for new U.S. ‘radical sanctions and we understand that the second part of sanctions will be announced by Washington based on the mechanisms in place,” Peskov said’

Peskov noted that it is necessary to prepare for new sanctions also taking into account the fact that Russia and the United States have different positions on chemical weapons. “There are assumptions that Russia has chemical weapons. But there is no such data and there can be no such data, because Russia destroyed its chemical arsenal a long time ago,” he said.

Putin’s press secretary also said that it is inappropriate to speculate about sanctions on Russian businessmen. “We hope that such crazy statements will remain only on the pages of the media and will not find fertile ground in the American official establishment,” he said.

Earlier, Bloomberg agency, citing sources, reported that the U.S. and Great Britain are discussing the imposition of additional sanctions against Russia for the use of chemical weapons. They can include restrictions against “Russian oligarchs” and such “extreme steps” as sanctions against Russia’s sovereign debt.
