The US considers Russia’s response to the imposed sanctions escalating. This was stated by a representative of the State Department of the country. He added that the American side reserves the right to respond to the measures announced by Russia. Given that the overall tension in the situation is regrettable.
We will remind, on the eve of the United States imposed sanctions against Russian companies and citizens. Basically, they are somehow related to the IT sphere. A ban was also imposed on the direct purchase of Russian bonds. Now American banks will be able to invest in Russian securities only with the help of intermediaries. 10 Russian diplomats were expelled from the United States.
In response, Russia has banned eight American officials from entering indefinitely, expelled 10 American diplomats and banned Russians from working in American diplomatic missions.
