Washington has repeatedly imposed sanctions on the FSB for alleged illegal detention of US citizens.

WASHINGTON, April 27 – RIA Novosti. A senior administration official told reporters that US authorities have imposed new sanctions on Russia’s FSB.

This is just the first step in our program of action,” he said.

A simple example in Germany showed that the sanctions against Russia had failed.

According to him, there are other objects and persons for whom similar actions are planned, “they are currently being worked on,” he warned.

He said the decision to impose sanctions was taken long before the arrest in Russia of American journalist Evan Gershkovich, who was reportedly detained in Yekaterinburg on March 30 by the FSB, on suspicion of espionage.

“Work on developing these sanctions was done long before Evan (Hershkovich) concluded a month ago,” a White House spokesperson told reporters.

But as he himself emphasized, the sanctions reflect Russia’s current activity with American citizens.

On March 30, the Russian FSB announced that Evan Gershkovich, a correspondent for the WSJ Moscow bureau, was detained in Yekaterinburg on suspicion of spying on behalf of the US government. According to the Russian intelligence service, the American collected information “about the activities of one of the enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex”, which constitutes a state secret. The Moscow Lefortovo Court arrested him for two months.

Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that Gershkovich was caught red-handed. Maria Zakharova, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stressed that Gershkovich’s activities in Yekaterinburg have nothing to do with journalism. According to him, it is not the first time that foreign correspondent status, journalistic visa and accreditation have been used by foreigners in Russia to cover up non-journalistic activities: “this is not the first well-known Westerner to be caught” by hand.
