Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the ministry has summoned Sullivan after President Joe Biden’s decision to send 10 diplomats back to the country and impose economic sanctions. They will be asked for clarification in this matter. Zakharova said that the US ambassador has been summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry. He said that this conversation is going to be harsh for the American side. Tensions between the two countries have come at a time when Biden expressed a desire to talk to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the Ukraine issue.
America will have to pay the price for spoiling the relationship
Zakharova said that the Kremlin and its military activities are not endangered and it will be the responsibility of the US to spoil the relationship. He said that Washington should understand that it would have to pay a price to reduce bilateral relations. America is completely responsible for what is happening. Such aggressive behavior will definitely be responded to and retaliatory action will be taken against the sanctions. According to the Russian media, the Kremlin warned Sullivan on Tuesday only after receiving the information about the fragrance of the sanctions.
That’s why America imposed a ban
This action has been taken by Joe Biden because his administration suspects that the presidential election was interfered like Russia. Apart from this, the US believes that Russia has also tried hacking into the country’s security installations. It is believed that Russian burglars had infiltrated the widely used software. Their objective was to hack the networks of at least nine agencies. American officials believe that they tried to gather secret information of the US government. For this reason these restrictions have been imposed.
