Earlier, media reports said Washington had allegedly set forth conditions for a partial lifting of anti-Russian sanctions. “We know nothing about these sources in Washington,” Peskov said.
He also said there were no clear dates at the moment for a possible introduction of a second package of Russian sanctions amid a war of sanctions with the West.
Russian officials and companies came under Western sanctions, including visa bans, asset freezes, and sectoral restrictions for Russia's incorporation of Crimea and for what the West claimed was Moscow’s alleged involvement in mass protests in Ukraine’s embattled southeast. In response, Moscow imposed on August 6 a one-year ban on imports of beef, pork, poultry, fish, cheeses, fruit, vegetables and dairy products from Australia, Canada, the EU, the United States and Norway. The most recent set of sanctions against Russia was introduced last week by the European Union and the United States.
