MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. The Anti-Corruption Foundation (non-profit organization recognized as foreign agent in Russia) created by Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny has reaffirmed its foreign agent status by calling on US President Joe Biden to introduce sanctions against several dozens of Russian businessmen and politicians, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"As for this foundation and all these letters and calls, the foundation de jure and de facto demonstrated its status of foreign agent," the Kremlin spokesman stressed.
When asked about the Kremlin’s view on the West’s sanction policies, Peskov noted that this opinion "is well known." "We reject these sanctions. We believe them to be absolutely unacceptable, we believe that it is a profoundly wrong way of engaging in relations between states. There are no prospects in this method," he underlined.
On Saturday, January 30, Anti-Corruption Foundation Executive Director Vladimir Ashurkov posted an address in his Facebook account to US President Joe Biden to urge the US administration to impose sanctions against several dozens of Russians.
