As Pravda.Ru reported, the US declared about new sanctions against Russia yesterday because of cyber attacks it had allegedly carried out. In particular, 35 Russian diplomats from the Embassy in Washington and consulate general in San Francisco were declared persona non grata. Along with their families they should leave the US territory in 72 hours.
Beside that, the State Department closed access to two complexes in Maryland and in New York which belong to the Russian government. The White House also announced imposition of sanctions against the Russian special services, including the Main Intelligence Directorate and Federal Security Service, as they believe they are involved in cyber attacks. Sanctions presuppose blockade of property and ban to visit the US.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
