Introducing new sanctions against the Russian sovereign debt could have a negative impact not only on Russian economy but also the American investors and their assets, the report of the U.S. Department of Treasury disclosed by Bloomberg said.

The report says sanctions against the sovereign debt market would put downward pressure on Russian economic growth, increase strain on the banking sector and “lead to Russian retaliation against U.S. interests.”

“Given the size of Russia’s economy, its interconnectedness and prevalence in global asset markets, and the likely over-compliance by global firms to U.S. sanctions, the magnitude and scope of consequences from expanding sanctions to sovereign debt and derivatives is uncertain and the effects could be borne by both the Russian Federation and U.S. investors and businesses,” the report finds.
