Psaki: the meeting between Biden and Putin did not bring “any changes”

The Geneva meeting of Russian and U.S. Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden did not bring “any changes” to Washington's anti-Russian sanctions policy, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

“The law requires that we continue to consider the targets of sanctions related to the use of chemical weapons,” Psaki said, quoted by the New York Times.

The publication notes that according to Psaki, the period when Sullivan's words were heard does not matter. According to the White House press secretary, “nothing has changed” in this regard after the Russia — US summit held in Geneva on June 16.

Earlier, the US president's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, said that the US is preparing a “new package of sanctions” because of the situation with Alexei Navalny. In addition, according to him, the United States will continue to impose sanctions against Russian companies building the Nord Stream 2 pipelines.

On the eve of the assistant to the President of the United States for National Security, Jake Sullivan said that the United States began to prepare new sanctions against Russia. On the same day, Moscow warned of a natural response to Washington's new sanctions.

Earlier, President Vladimir Putin indicated that if the United States imposes new sanctions against Russia after the Geneva summit, this is another missed opportunity in relations.
