The United States has declared an "economic war" on Russia, the Kremlin said Wednesday.
Yesterday, President Joe Biden announced his administration was banning Russian oil, natural gas and coal imports to the US in order to target "the main artery" of the Russian economy.
The United States has undoubtedly declared an economic war on Russia and they are waging this war. This is de facto true,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a regular conference call.
When asked what his country needed to do in order to prevail in this economic environment, Peskov said that Russia would "do what is best for our interests."
The West have slapped an array of economic sanctions on Russia since its invasion of Ukraine last month, the European Union continuing the trend today with a fourth round of sanctions.
