Russian Foreign Ministry summons U.S. ambassador, warns of serious response to sanctions

On April 15, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov met with U.S. Ambassador to Moscow John Sullivan, reported the press service of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The ministry said that the Russian side gave an assessment of the “unacceptable actions of the American side”, which allegedly inflicted a heavy blow to the Russian Federation instead of the stated intention to build pragmatic relations.

Ryabkov told Sullivan that “a series of retaliatory measures will follow” in the near future and that U.S. attempts to warn against further escalation are inappropriate. The ministry also said that Moscow was responsible in maintaining relations with the United States, while Washington “only aggravated the situation.”

“In addition to assessing the current situation in the context of the new U.S. sanctions package, the sides also touched on some other bilateral issues,” the Russian Foreign Ministry added.

On April 15, U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order imposing new sanctions against Russia.

Russia immediately said it intended to respond to U.S. sanctions.

After that, the American ambassador to Russia was summoned for a “harsh conversation” at the Foreign Ministry.

    Like what? Russia don’t have the means to hurt the US, but this terrorist doesn’t realise that these sanctions are just a warning of what the US can do. Should the US ban trading in the secondary market for rubbles then the Russian economy is down the pan, along with Putin’s popularity.

    • Putler’s nazi regime’s method of retaliation could be to attack US allies.
      This should have been prepared for long ago.
      Biden must assemble a credible task force to bolster Ukraine’s defences. It need not be massive, but it needs to be powerful. Starting with a cutting edge SAM system.

      • Placing a few thousand NATO troops armed to the teeth with sophisticated weapons on the border of Kaliningrad could do the trick, along with the US fleet placed in the Baltic sea between Lithuania and Poland.

      • This is another good reason why Trump let these treaties expire with the ruSSo-runt. He was violating them anyway. If they were still in place today, the West would be caught with their pants down. I think the West and specifically NATO should make Putler rue the day he cheated on us.

    Reading the mafiosi words leaves no doubt that they are angry … no, pissed. This always makes me feel pleased. An angry Ruskie mafiosi is always a good thing.
