The White House does not want to take additional restrictive measures against Russia, said the press secretary of the US president Jen Psaki. According to her, Washington still reserves the right to do this.
When we announced our sanctions, we used the maximum room for maneuver to be able to take additional measures if Russia’s actions become the basis for this. No one wants to bring the matter to this, but we reserve the right to do so if we decide that it is justified, “ Psaki stressed.
She once again voiced the recently popular thesis in the United States that Washington expects to build “more predictable and long-term” relations with Moscow.
Earlier it became known that the United States is interested in predictable and stable relations with Moscow, but will respond to those of its actions that are considered unacceptable, said Jen Psaki. She added that the sanctions imposed in April against Russia were a similar response and that is why the host of the White House, Joe Biden, offered to hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
