If the Washington house have introduced sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin in connection with cyber attacks on the electoral system in the United States, it would have been a disaster. As reported on Tuesday, January 3, RIA Novosti, this was stated to journalists by the representative of the White house Josh Ernest at a regular briefing.
“According to the policy of imposing sanctions, the leaders of foreign countries entered to the black list only in certain circumstances. And it would be extraordinary if Putin personally appeared in this list,” — said Ernest.
December 29, Washington imposed sanctions against Russia in connection with the alleged attacks on the electoral system of the United States. In particular, under the restrictions were FSB and the Main intelligence Directorate of the General staff of the Armed forces.
The United States has repeatedly accused Russia of meddling in the election campaign to help the Republican Donald Trump becoming President. Under the assumptions of U.S. officials, in July, Russian hackers broke into the servers of the National Committee of the democratic party, and the party Committee of the Congressional. In addition, there were suspicions that Russia could try to influence the voting by hacking computers. Moscow consistently denies the charges.
