According to the official representative of the Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has been summoned to Moscow for consultations. This is necessary to analyze "what to do and where to go in the context of relations with the United States".

In diplomatic language, recall for consultation means a common international practice for expressing dissatisfaction with the policies of the state where the ambassador works. Today, March 17, US President Joe Biden answered in the affirmative when asked whether he considers Russian leader Vladimir Putin a "killer", and also noted that Vladimir Putin will "pay" for attempts to interfere in the American elections.

Also, the US Department of Commerce announced the introduction of a new portion of anti-Russian sanctions provoked by the situation with Russia's refusal to investigate the poisoning of opposition politician Alexey Navalny. New anti-Russian sanctions, announced by Joe Biden on ABC, led to a serious collapse of the ruble against the dollar and euro in the auctions on March 17.

“The new American administration has been in power for almost two months, the symbolic milestone of 100 days is not far off, and this is a good reason to try to assess what Joe Biden's team is doing and what is not. straightening out the Russian-American ties, which are in a difficult state, which Washington has brought to a standstill in recent years, "the Interfax news agency quoted Maria Zakharova as saying. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry declared its interest in preventing the irreversible degradation of relations between Russia and the United States, "if the Americans realize the risks associated with this".
