Russia: US sanctions will not prevent adopting independent approach on int’l politics

Russia said on Tuesday that the new sanctions by the United States of America will not prevent the Russian government from adopting a new independent approach on international politics.

“Washington will not force Russia to change its political approach by imposing new sanctions on it,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“Washington shows its inabilities with each new sanction that it imposes on Russia and it will not have any consequences,” the statement continued.

“US political parties are delusional and the new sanctions are short-sighted and create enmities instead of fighting terrorism,” the statement added.

“The American policy is dangerous and time will hold those accountable,” the statement added.

The US treasury has imposed curbs on a number of Russian dignitaries and corporations based on a law provided by Washington last year to stress sanctions on Russia.
