“The Americans in this case act out of their own interests to limit competition in this field with Russian financial institutions. It is absolutely clear that no convincing evidence has been provided to the world community of Russia and Russian citizens in the incident in Salisbury, ”Morozov said.
According to the politician, the probable damage to Russian-American commercial relations, which, according to the State Department, may amount to "billions of dollars", will have a slight effect on the Russian economy.
“Russia is a large, self-sufficient country, in addition to America we have many other trade and economic partners in Asia and the Middle East. Of course, it is sad that politicians impose restrictions on business and the development of the economy, but I do not think that this will significantly affect our well-being, ”said the deputy.
Earlier, the State Department has published a document on the introduction of a second package of sanctions against Russia in the case of Skripale.
