MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. U.S. ambition to impose its will on the whole world and pressure with the aid of sanctions will bump into a radical reaction from Russia, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Saturday ahead of a meeting in Rome of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
When asked by TASS which aspects on Ukraine’s agenda would be on the table of negotiations, Ryabkov replied, “Recently, new complicating moments have appeared in the situation, including the Ukraine Freedom Support Act, hastily adopted by the Senate and the House of Representatives in bypass of law, to my mind.”
“We are studying the text,” he said adding that “it causes deep concern, in particular by further attempts of extraterritorial application of the U.S. sanctions and the focus on blacklisting those legal entities in third countries which will have absolutely lawful collaboration with our companies and businesses. But this is only one of the aspects.”
“This bill is an inadmissible and scandalous document testifying to the fact that those who are behind it have not had any comprehension of what is going on in the world,” Ryabkov said.
Spiraling ambitions of the United States to “impose its will on one and all, not only on us but on the whole world is outrageous.”
“This policy will bump into a radical reaction from our side,” the diplomat said.
