Let us remember that the day before the United States Treasury announced the inclusion of 13 more people and 20 more companies in the sanctions against Russia and Belarus. Restrictions were also imposed on companies from Cyprus, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The sanctions do not apply to Russia, our country’s economy is firmly on its feet and developing, the diplomat stated in a statement published on the Embassy’s Telegram channel. According to Antonov, any attempt to force Moscow to change its policy is doomed to failure.
At the same time, thousands of anti-Russian restrictions create serious problems for American companies. American companies and corporations are losing huge incomes due to their exit from the Russian market, rejection of Russian energy resources and other goods, the ambassador noted.
He added that to implement its foreign policy goals, Washington, “wielding the baton of sanctions,” is sacrificing the interests of its allies, this time Belgium, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Germany. “Do they really not understand that in this way they themselves are sawing off the branch of the dollar on which the American economy is based?” concluded the diplomat.
