MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Relations between Russia and the United States are at a record-low level but Russia hopes for a dialog, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said about the United States’ latest decision to impose sanctions against several Russian arms manufacturing enterprises.
"Russian-US relations are at a very low level, which could not be worse. This is a very bad signal, of course. But we hope for mutual respect and dialog with the US administration on the bilateral and international agenda," Matviyenko said.
She hopes that the sanctions will not cause adverse effects on our enterprises, which will keep up good work.
Last week it was announced that the United States acting in compliance with its Iran, North Korea and Syria Nonproliferation Act imposed sanctions on eight Russian organizations. A US State Department official told TASS these organizations are Rostec’s affiliates Rosoboronexport, research and industrial association Bazalt, 150th Aircraft Repair Plant and the Kolomna Machine-Building Design Bureau.
