All proygressive»effects of extremely toxic and will undermine the prospects of cooperation in the years ahead,» Kosachev wrote in the social network Facebook.

«Normal these relationships will not be, at least for now in power in Washington, the current generation of politicians that emerged during the «cold war» and never eradicated it, at least a drop of their souls by manic idea of «American exceptionalism», he concluded.

According to Kosachev, after reading the report a few conclusions if «Yes, of course, reject the version that thus (the President of the United States Donald) trump… just subtly mocks Congress in the genre of «like — so get…». Kosachev noted that the first acquaintance with the «American list», given to the U.S. Treasury to Congress, creates, at least in its «political part», a strong sense that the U.S. intelligence services, «desperate to find the promised and, most importantly, provable dirt on Russian politicians, just rewrote the Kremlin phone directory». There are all, without exception, «the list» of all «the list» Russian governing structures, he added.

According to the Senator, there is «the vacuity of the claims, and the consequent helplessness of the Americans, with a persistence worthy of a better cause, trying to impress the world with evidence of the «Russian threat». Kosachev said that «from month to month, throwing the «hot potato» from Congress to the administration, Americans just keep the topic afloat, roasting non-existing «facts» and «version» for no reason».

«This will continue. But the king, apparently naked,» wrote the politician.

Another conclusion from reading, believes Kosachev, «this is a really long haul». «Political paranoia, as it turns out, is very difficult to treat, especially when the patient does not recognize and refuses to be treated», he said. «Russia is no stranger, the last few years have taught us its readiness for the unexpected, and to political dirty tricks. Respect only the strong and only the strong are considered. We become stronger and we are on the right track. False — the US relationship with Russia — that is: not the bilateral relations, and American to Russian», — he concluded.

The U.S. Treasury in the night of Tuesday published «the Kremlin list», which included almost the entire leadership of the Russian Federation and major Russian businessmen – more than 200 people. The list was prepared in accordance with the law «On combating the enemies of America through sanctions», which was adopted in the U.S. in the summer of 2017. It does not entail the automatic imposition of sanctions against these individuals, but implies that they can be introduced to US sanctions.
