The United States will soon announce new sanctions against Russia in connection with the situation in Syria, said the US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.
“You will see that sanctions against Russia will intensify, Minister Mnuchin will announce this on Monday, if he has not already done so, and they will be sent directly to companies that supply equipment and technologies to the President of Syria Bashar” the diplomat said.
Earlier, a letter of warning was given to the Russian Foreign Ministry by the US ambassador in Moscow John Huntsman. The first part outlines the motives of the military operation, which the US and its allies held in Syria.
The second part of the letter informs that Washington is preparing a new package of sanctions against Moscow “for the support of the Syrian regime.”
