MOSCOW, April 18. /TASS/. The United States has notified Russia through its Embassy in Washington that it will not impose fresh sanctions against Russia for the time being, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry informed TASS on Wednesday.
“I can confirm that the US has notified the Russian embassy that there will be no new sanctions for some time,” he said.
