“We are trying to increase the pressure that we exerted on Russia with the aim to seek negotiations to find a solution. This involves the continuing application of US sanctions and periodic strengthening of these sanctions over time. And this is the path on which we walk during the administration of trump, and will continue to go this way,” said Walker.

“You see additional sanctions are introduced every month or two months”, – said the representative of the United States.

As said by Volker, in the same way the US work very closely with allies in the European Union for the continuance in force of the sanctions imposed.

“And I think it’s fairly unlikely for Russia, perhaps, but the European Union has shown remarkable resilience in the strengthening and preservation of force (sanctions – the UNIAN)”, – said Walker.
