American parliamentarians are avoiding dialogue with our Russian colleagues, because they are afraid of him, says the Senator Viktor Ozerov included in 2014 in the sanctions list of the USA.

Lake in 2014 among the other citizens of the Russian Federation was included in the sanctions list of the USA, which did not agree with Russia’s actions during the Ukrainian crisis. The constraints imply, in particular, the ban on entry into the United States and the blocking of assets and property. In 2017 the U.S. Congress adopted the law «On combating the enemies of America through sanctions.» According to the law, the Secretary of state, Minister of Finance and the Director of national intelligence have until the end of January 2018 to submit to the Congress a list of persons having close links with the Russian authorities, as well as to assess the prospects of imposing sanctions against the defendants in this list

«I have these sanctions desire to communicate with any American or European partners, or even with colleagues from Australia, the sanctions list which I am also not repulsed. On the contrary, I’m always open to dialogue. But, unfortunately, our foreign partners in this dialogue or not, or they are afraid of him. I’m afraid that the second prevails,» said lake in an interview with RIA Novosti.

The Senator stressed that U.S. sanctions did not bring any changes either in his work or in personal life or in political views.

«Moreover, thus I feel ownership of what is done in our country. I agree with what is being done and in domestic and foreign policy of Russia. And so proud as well not give anyone the rest, as a stronger Russia as a whole. So I don’t care how many sanctions against me even will to act,» he concluded.
