The Kremlin criticized the U.S. decision as of 1 August about the introduction of a second package of sanctions against Russia. These sanctions – reaction to the many evidence linking the Kremlin to the poisoning of ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in British Salisbury that Russia itself calls a “dramatization”.
The Russian Embassy in Britain has accused London of the failure of the results of the investigation of events in Salisbury. Supposedly it is kept secret not only from Russian side but also from the world community. And indeed, as say in Russia, no evidence of Russian involvement in this incident no. About it it is spoken in promulgated on August 1 communique of the Embassy.
The Embassy laments that Britain has not replied to any one of more than 80 diplomatic note to the MFA of the United Kingdom. Therefore, the Russian diplomats believe that “the decision of the American authorities, at least, raises many legitimate issues.” And poisoning Sripala is a “hoax”, which the United States is used for the deterioration of relations with Russia.
Later on the situation confidently responded first Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov. The Russian economy, saying in recent years that has proven resilient to sanctions, so this time will be able to quickly adapt to adverse conditions. And the fact that the US has set limits on the public debt of Russia – not a problem, because the Russian financial system will somehow handle the situation with loans to the budget.
