According to him, the probability of introduction of new restrictions against Moscow is estimated as moderate. "Possible new sanctions as it seems to us, will be rather selective and to concern certain natural persons and also the companies, banks of not systemically significant. Russia can absorb shocks from such sanctions without negative impact on rating" — Vartapetov has told. He has also noted that the toughest sanctions can be connected with restrictions for purchase of a new sovereign debt of Russia and banks of the country. The agency considers that the effect of these measures on the Russian macroeconomic can be rather strong. So, according to Vartapetov, restrictions on national banks can exert negative impact on export operations, including in the power sphere. "It seems to us that probability of introduction of these two sanctions projects at the moment rather moderate" — he has said. On August 27, 2018 the first package of sanctions of State Department of the USA against Russia which is entered in connection with so-called "business by Skripalya" has come into force. The USA, in particular, has imposed a ban on assistance of Russia according to the Law on the foreign help of 1961; have stopped granting the Russian Federation services in the military sphere and also issue of licenses for export to Russia of any goods which are included into "The list of arms of the USA". The second package of sanctions can be entered in case Russia doesn't provide "reliable guarantees" of the fact that it won't use chemical weapon in the future, and won't agree to conducting checks "on the place" inspectors of the UN. This package can include such measures as reduction of diplomatic relations and practically all trade between the countries.
