New US sanctions imposed on Russia will not affect the stability of its macroeconomic situation. This was stated by Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, as TASS reports.

"[Russia’s] macroeconomic stability is fully ensured, our regulator is acting moderately and successfully, the efficiency of our economic bloc is recognized internationally," the Kremlin official said.

Earlier, U.S. President Joe Biden signed a decree imposing new sanctions on Russia. 

In particular, sanctions are imposed on 32 legal entities and individuals who made attempts on orders by the Russian government to influence the U.S. presidential election in 2020, as well as other acts of misinformation and interference.

Meanwhile, certain EU member countries offer to impose sanctions against Russian individuals who are behind cyber attacks on the United States. The proposals come as the EU expresses solidarity with the US, says a diplomatic source in the permanent mission of one of the EU countries in Brussels; TASS quoted the interlocutor.

"After the release of the recent package of U.S. sanctions, the EU assumes introduction of limited sanctions against Russian nationals involved in the cybernetic attacks," the interlocutor said.
