Antonov explained why the United States is now talking about sanctions against Russia


The United States will not be able to intimidate Russia with new sanctions. This was stated by the Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov. He noted that the “crippling” restrictions against Moscow announced by the US senators are yet another provocation.

“We will not be intimidated,” reads a message posted on the embassy’s Facebook page.

According to Antonov, such high-profile statements in the Capitol are heard right now not by chance. This is an attempt to influence Moscow against the backdrop of ongoing security consultations in Geneva.

“In such pressure, we see the inability of the United States to reasonably defend its point of view at the negotiating table,” the diplomat stated.
