Impossible to stabilize relations through sanctions - Russia

Russia's Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov (pictured) stated on Sunday that he believes it is impossible to stabilize or improve relations between Russia and the US through sanctions.

Antonov added that the news of potential new sanctions on the country, for its detention and alleged poisoning of Alexey Navalny, is "not the signal" that the international community was hoping for following the summit between Russia's Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also chimed in on the issue indicating they may retaliate, with its spokeswoman saying: "Our logical response has always followed the illegal actions of the United States. It is strange that some people in Washington like this obstacle course on the merry-go-round so much"
