MOSCOW, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian president’s property manager Vladimir Kozhin, whom the United States has included in its list of sanctions imposed on Russian officials, has expressed his regret over the fact.
“I can only regret the shortsightedness, that borders on stupidity, of those who made a decision to impose sanctions,” Kozhin told Itar-Tass.
“It is obvious that in reality sanctions mean losses for both sides, the American one in the first place in this particular case,” Kozhin said.
Kozhin is the head of the joint Russian-American working group for library cooperation.
“The cooperation between the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library and the Library of the US Congress is effective and mutually beneficial,” the presidential property manager went on to say.
“Several years ago, the Russian side handed over digital copies of rare film materials from the Russian State Film Fund (Gosfilmfond) to the American side. Those films, which are of great cultural, artistic and historical value, were once lost in the United States forever,” Kozhin went on to say, adding that the United States was very grateful to Russia and asked it to go ahed with cooperation in hope of getting a new series of unique film materials.
“However, the announced sanctions has put an end to this cooperation for the time being,” the presidential property manager emphasized.
