Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary, informed that the U.S. officials continue working on the coming meeting of the states’ leaders.
““As the president has said, he wants to have a good relationship with Russia but that’s going to depend on some of the actions by the Russians,” she said at the briefing.
As we reported earlier, the U.S. imposed new sanctions against Russian oligarchs and companies on April 6. The new sanctions concern a possible Moscow’s intervention in the U.S. elections in 2016.
Russian businessmen and entrepreneurs, whose wealth is more than $1 billion are on the sanctions list. Alexey Miller, CEO of Gazprom, Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, and Aleksandr Zharov, the Head of Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications, - ed.) appeared in the sanctions list as well.
