New US anti-Russia sanctions are not worth any attention

New US sanctions against Russia are senseless and counterproductive, RISS expert Mikhail Belyaev considers. "The USA is trying to control export of certain types of products to Russia and cut the placement of the Russian national debt denominated in foreign currency," he said. After dealing with five years of anti-Russian US sanctions, Russian economy has enjoyed significant growth.

No way back for Nord Stream 2

New US sanctions against the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline harms primarily German economy. Berlin will distribute gas to all of Europe, and the USA doesn't like it, RISS expert Mikhail Belyaev considers.

Experts: There are no quick solutions to US sanctions

With the United States recklessly wielding its sanctions on a number of countries of late, Russia has quickly responded by strengthening cooperation with other nations such as Iran and Turkey. Though the active interactions enable Moscow to establish closer ties externally, no major changes can be expected until fundamental problems are resolved, Russian experts said.

Hard Ankara's response to US sanctions meets the approval of the Turkish society

Sanctions war between the United States and Turkey will continue at different levels, said RISS expert Georgy Sosnov. Commenting on Russian Foreign Minister S.Lavrov's visit in Ankara, he noted that when S.Lavrov appreciated Turkey's refusal to join anti-Russian sanctions and touched upon the issue of the US sanctions against Turkey, the audience applauded. "Turkish Foreign Minister M.Cavusoglu reassured that America's unipolar world has passed and Washington should realize this. Such an extreme step as the anti-Turkish sanctions will mean very serious losses for the United States," he said.

The Chinese market will help Russia to overcome US sanctions

The new sanctions imposed by the US State Department, which is under the President, should dispel the illusions of Russian society that D.Trump is positive about Russia, RISS expert Vyacheslav Kholodkov pointed out. "It is also notable that sanctions were imposed after the US-Russia summit in Helsinki. They confirm Nikki Haley's statement, the US Representative to the UN, who said that Russia would never be America’s friend," he added.

The U.S. State Department threatens with new sanctions again

Washington has actually declared a "lawfare" to Moscow by its statement on a new package of anti-Russian sanctions because of the alleged use of chemical weapons by Russia, RISS expert Anna Glazova pointed out. This term is not yet known in Russian, but it is widespread in English. "This is one of the methods of asymmetric warfare. The goal is to use national and international law to your own advantage. This can be much more dangerous because of document forgery", she said.
