Earlier, the U.S. Treasury’s report to Congress warned of the danger of sanctions that will lead to curbing the growth of the Russian economy, but also increase the burden on the banking sector of the country.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said during a meeting of the Finance Committee of the U.S. house of representatives that the new sanctions proposed by the Agency to Congress, not focused on the sovereign debt of Russia, writes Vloomberg.

“We focus on appropriate sanctions against bad people and companies, and not on sanctions against debt,” − said Mnuchin.

Earlier it was reported that the Kremlin feared the extension of sanctions on Russia’s state debt .

The list was prepared in accordance with the law On counteraction to enemies of America by sanctions.
