The sanctions imposed by the USA, the EU and other countries against Russia due to its aggression in Ukraine are efficient but they still aren’t enough to reach the desired result. Josh Earnest, the White House representative, said this at a traditional briefing on October 6.

According to him, the main goal of the sanctions is 'to make Russia change its views on the Ukrainian issue, not to hurt the country’s economy'.

‘Russia pays the price for its actions in Ukraine,’ Earnest said.
