"The United States has one policy - containing Russia at any cost, they are losing ground in the world, they feel it, and are trying to restore their shaky position this way," Jabarov explained.

According to the senator, Russia will survive these sanctions, as it survived the restrictions that were introduced against it earlier.

“We will not be nervous, we know where to move, I think that from this we will only become stronger. For five years now they have been introducing these sanctions, right on the stream, I think they see that these sanctions have not achieved any special results. Moreover, in some industries, we began to rely on ourselves and moved forward quite well, ”he concluded.

Earlier, the State Department confirmed the imposition of sanctions in the Skripal case since August 26.

Measures include a ban on lending to the Russian government by American banks, and restrictions on exports from Russia.

In early August, the State Department announced the introduction of a second package of sanctions against Russia in connection with the case of poisoning in the UK of a former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.
