Washington believes it possible to introduce sanctions against Russia because of its course of action in Syria, said on Friday at a briefing US State Department spokesman Mark Toner.
"This option - is one of many that we are considering, but I'm not going to announce anything," - he said.
Last Tuesday, White House spokesman Josh Ernest has already stated that the US administration does not rule out sanctions against Russian citizens in connection with the support of the Syrian authorities and the situation in Aleppo
"We do not rule out the prospects of introducing additional financial sanctions. Financial sanctions have proven that it is a useful tool to promote our interests in the world. That's why we can not rule out such sanctions.." - Ernest said, responding to a reporter's question.
At the same time Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that Russia is open to cooperation with the US to determine the goals in Syria.
