One of the country’s top officials threatened to respond to America’s “idiotic” sanctions against Moscow on Thursday, according to Russian media reports.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said hostile measures by the United States and the United Kingdom will not go “unanswered,” and this served as a warning.
Izvestia quoted Zakharova on the “Solovyov Live” program as saying, “All the measures that they will take… even of such an absurd character, they will be developed and continued… as you know, we do not leave anything unanswered, and they must understand this.”
A few weeks ago, State Department officials stated they were considering adding Russia to the list of countries that are “Sponsors of Terrorism.”
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24, is the most likely explanation for the violence.
In addition, the United States and its allies are forming new teams to “seize and freeze” the enormous assets of Russian oligarchs, including as yachts, mansions, and other properties.
It appears that the REPO task force (short for Russian elites, proxies, and oligarchs) will collaborate with other countries to investigate and prosecute Russian oligarchs and those who support Vladimir Putin.
According to Zakharova’s Thursday interview, Russia will retaliate severely against the United States. Nevertheless, according to Newsweek, prior threats against the United Kingdom were more precise in nature.
For instance, the Kremlin recently warned the United Kingdom that Moscow would respond immediately with a “proportional response” if it supported Ukraine’s attacks on Russian targets.
The Russian Defense Ministry responded to a remark by British Defense Minister James Heappey by saying, “We would like to underscore that London’s direct incitement of the Kyiv government into such acts, if such actions are carried out, will instantly lead to our proportionate response.”
As of Monday, a group of U.S. officials had suggested that the State Department name the following countries: Russia, China, India, North Korea, and ten additional countries.
15 countries were selected by the United States Commission for International Religious Freedom because their governments “engage in or tolerate systematic, persistent and severe breaches,” according to the USCIRF’s report.
Nations that utilize and abuse “restrictive legislation” to suppress religious freedom around the world are also targeted in the report. The inclusion of Russia on the CPC list predates the conflict in Ukraine.
