Russia is not ruling out any steps “to bring the US to its senses,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has said.

“We are not ruling out any steps, so to say, to bring to their senses those presumptuous Russophobes who are setting the tone on Capitol Hill today,” Ryabkov told reporters.

The statement comes after Moscow’s decision to reduce the number of US diplomatic staff in Russia and suspend the use of American embassy storage facilities.

Ryabkov also warned that the retaliatory measures are not limited to the reduction of US diplomatic personnel and the seizure of diplomatic property.

“We cannot put up with Russophobic mayhem on Capitol Hill, which was expressed in the adoption of an unprecedentedly far-reaching document in both chambers,” Ryabkov told RT.

“We believe that our American colleagues had enough time to weigh up the potentially destructive consequences of such actions,” he added.

Criticizing the new round of sanctions approved by US lawmakers on Tuesday, the deputy foreign minister said that Russia would not accept such actions.

“Russia will never submit to this kind of techniques. We stand for international law, for the fair, consistent finding of necessary solutions to world problems, which can be found only together,” he said.
