Another extension of sanctions by the US will not influence the course of Moscow; Russian companies and citizens will not suffer from the new restrictive measures, said RIA Novosti Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

On Tuesday, the US Treasury imposed sanctions on 38 individuals and organizations against the Deputy Minister of economic development of the Russian Federation Sergey Nazarov in connection with the situation around Ukraine, as well as against six banks for their activities in the Crimea.

«We said from the very beginning of the Washington’s destructive extremely destructive policy of sanctions against Russia, to our physical and legal entities, which required US of the effect they will not give and can not give. We repeat constantly, and this I declare once again. But I would like to say that in the current situation. Repeatedly Moscow at various levels emphasized that to judge the policy of the US administration towards Russia, we will in its actions, not rhetoric. Not for some signals, the hints, some semi-formal impulses, but strictly on business. That’s the case speak for themselves,» — said Ryabkov.

According to him «those Russian officials who were in the list today, of course, will not suffer from the American sanctions.»

«We are confident in their own right. And all these aspirations of those who thinks all of new sanctions against Russia in Washington, these aspirations will remain nothing more than a product of the inflamed political thought. Any harm, damage us, they do not strike. We will continue your course firmly and consistently,» — said a senior diplomat.Ryabkov said that the expansion of U.S. sanctions will have no effect on the course of Moscow© RIA Novosti, Infografiken sanctions against Russia and retaliatory measures
