The US administration announced on Tuesday sanctions against VTB Bank, Russian Agricultural Bank and Bank of Moscow.
“Adequate measures will be taken, if necessary, to support these organizations to protect the interests of their clients, depositors and creditors,” the Central Bank said in a statement.
In early July, when the United States imposed a third package of sanctions against Russian state development corporation Vnesheconombank and Gazprombank, the Russian Central Bank also announced its readiness to help the domestic lenders.
In addition, the USA has suspended cooperation with Russia in the field of combating drug trafficking and in the space industry (except for the International Space Station project), and introduced restrictions for supplying military and double-purpose products to Russia.
