MINSK, 2 May (BelTA) - By imposing sanctions against the Russian Federation Washington is sowing further doubt on the U.S. constructive role in the world, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said as he commented on another package of anti-Russian sanctions, TASS reported.

"Local officials list a variety of measures among ‘no-other-option steps’ to confront Russia," he said. "Washington seems to not understand that Russia and the Russians cannot be intimidated by such decisions. Local officials do not realize that these illegitimate tricks only scare other states away. In fact, they are sowing further doubt whether the United States plays a constructive role in the world."

The United States, in his words is seeking "to intimidate our [Russia’s] partners, including China, to block the channels of normal foreign trade cooperation." "It is once again targeting Russian high-tech, transportation, and energy companies, meaning to ‘knock out’ competitors from the markets," he noted.

"The whole world saw another "hodgepodge" of restrictions created by the Administration. This is an example of the series of Russophobic actions taken by the United States in recent days.
