It is said in the report of the Deputy Minister of Finance of the USA Segal Mendelker prepared for hearings of banking committee of the Senate of the USA. "While the companies work on separating from the Russian persons who are under sanctions worldwide, our actions impose the unprecedented level of financial pressure upon those who support harmful policy of the Kremlin, and on key sectors of the Russian economy" — Mengdelker is said in the report. "Actions of the Ministry of Finance (USA) have led to considerable consequences for the financial interests of natural and legal entities to whom these actions have been directed, including blocking of the Russian assets in the USA for hundreds of millions dollars" — it is said in the report. In opinion Mandelker, "consequences of the sanctions connected with Russia are felt far outside the organizations and natural persons concerning whom they have been entered".
