The sanctions imposed by the American administration will not go unanswered. This is stated in the commentary of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

“As before, the anti-Russian attack will not go unanswered,” the diplomatic service said.

In Russia, they called the situation “stupid games in sanctions.”

In addition, the Russian Foreign Ministry expressed “extreme bewilderment with the new portion of anti-Russian sanctions.”

The U.S. Treasury Department associates the expansion of sanctions lists, in particular, with Russia's attempts to influence the 2018 midterm elections in the country. This is stated in a statement released on Monday by the department.

“Today (Monday), the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control imposed sanctions on Russian individuals who tried to influence the midterm elections in 2018. There were no signs that foreign entities could compromise the electoral infrastructure, make changes or disrupt the counting process, “the document says.

Recall that a month ago the United States introduced the second package of sanctions against Russia related to the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in British Salisbury.
