The US sanctions against Russia, imposed last week, showed results “quite close” to Washington’s hopes, as stated by US President Joe Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan. This was announced on Saturday, April 24, by Reuters.
As the newspaper reports, the administration of the President of the United States, as a real result of the sanctions pressure, indicated a decrease in tension in relations between Russia and Ukraine.
A representative of the American side noted that the intention of the United States was to “send a signal” to Russia that the United States could inflict “even more damage” if the Russian Federation “continues its aggressive behavior.”
On April 18, presidential adviser Jake Sullivan warned Moscow about the “consequences” that await the Russian side in the event of the death of blogger Alexei Navalny.
