US Chamber of Commerce not supported unilateral sanctions against Russia

The US Chamber of Commerce opposed the introduction of unilateral sanctions against Russia due to the current political tensions in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, declared Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce, on March 12.

“We in the business community do not want to be caught in the crossfire,” stressed M.Brilliant.

Last week, a meeting of the US-Russia Business Council headed by Alcoa CEO Klaus Kleinfeld with the US President Barack Obama administration’s national security advisers took place. They discussed concerns over the sanctions, in particular, the risks that European competitors would gain some share of the Russian market.

According to Wall Street Journal, the USA and other Western countries would focus on “individual, targeted sanctions because broader economic sanctions could directly harm Western businesses”.
