Kremlin slams U.S. knee-jerk reaction for sanctions in bilateral ties as unacceptable
The Kremlin sees a persistent knee-jerk reaction for sanctions by U.S. lawmakers and believes that this sort of sanctions pressure is unacceptable.
"We see a constant knee-jerk reaction by American legislators for sanctions. We believe that such approaches in bilateral relations through the prism of sanctions pressure are unacceptable," Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The press secretary commented on reports that U.S. Senators from both parties submitted a bill to Congress to slap restrictions on Russia over the sentence handed to opposition figure Alexey Navalny. He noted that there would be more discussions on that matter.
"Let’s wait and see which way these discussions will go," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
