According to him, such initiatives have already been voiced earlier, but “no steps have been taken so far.” “But, on the other hand, there will be a new Duma very soon. Let’s see what moods will prevail there, – the official representative of the Kremlin. “This question will be open until we somehow form our position.”
According to RIA News, a spokesman for the president added that if new sanctions are adopted, Russia will respond “wisely.” “And I have no doubt that, as always, the President [Владимир] Putin, who formulates the main directions of foreign policy under the Constitution, will show this wisdom if necessary, ”he concluded and added that the head of state was informed about an attempt to introduce new sanctions and statements by US congressmen.
Previously, Peskov said that the possible adoption by the United States of new sanctions against 35 would be the worst scenario for the development of relations between the two states.

It is recommended to introduce restrictive measures against 35 people, including Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Peskov, FSB head Alexander Bortnikov, head of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, CEC head Ella Pamfilova and others. According to the chamber’s procedural committee, they are involved in human rights violations. Those caught under the sanctions are prohibited from entering the United States, their assets in American banks will be seized.
