'US restrictions on imports of Russian steel have been nothing more than a political mistake,' said President of the US Chamber of Commerce Thomas Donohue at a press conference in Moscow today. According to him, 'the US are softening the restrictions by the week', thus 'the sanctions will not last for long'. Mr. Donohue stressed that the Russian government and even entrepreneurs could help in removing the restrictions. 'No matter how many disagreements exist between our countries, we should not give up cooperating,' he emphasized.
Military expert Vladimir Orlov expressed the opinion that the Pentagon is preparing to strike at least four Russian regions.
