It is necessary to wait for the development of events in terms of the announcement by the Americans of certain decisions. And we will certainly respond. Questions of the relationship between practical actions and verbal reaction are the subject of separate consideration and decision.

According to him, "you need to see what the United States plans to do and provide an adequate response that does not infringe upon the interests of Russia and Russian business circles."
