MOSCOW, February 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has called the appeal of the US authorities recommending the country’s top banks not to buy Russian government bonds "intimidation".

According to the Wall Street Journal online publication released earlier on Thursday, "the US government has warned some top US banks not to bid on a potentially lucrative but politically risky Russian bond deal, saying it would undermine international sanctions on Moscow, people familiar with the matter said."

Speaking at a briefing on Thursday, Zakharova cited an extract from the publication. According to her, a source in the US State Department expressed the following stance: "It is very important for private companies in the US, EU and all over the world to understand that Russia will remain the market with a high degree of risk until it continues its attempts on destabilizing Ukraine ".

"This is not pressure already but intimidation, which are different things," Zakharova said.
