The United States and its allies want a constructive relationship with Russia while respecting its international obligations. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken wrote about this on Twitter.
Blinken also noted that the United States condemns the sanctions imposed by Russia against EU officials and considers this “another attempt by Moscow to intimidate critics.”
We will remind, earlier Russia introduced sanctions against eight officials of the European Alliance, they are prohibited from entering the country. The European Union said it would reserve the left to respond to Russian sanctions.
