US sanctions against the Russian Federation, introduced in connection with the annexation of the Crimea and the Ukrainian military aggression in Donbas, are optional. This was stated by US Republican Senator from Arizona John McCain in a letter to US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, writes The Washington Free Beacon.

He cites the example of the Russian manufacturer of rockets "Energomash", which due to the recent restructuring of the association came under the control of the Federal Space Agency "Roskosmos" where US buy rocket engines RD-180.

"The result is the payment of money to the Russian state corporation, controlled by officers and directors, against whom individual sanctions were imposed in connection with the invasion," - says McCain.
