“Not being included in the first list I even had some doubts - may be something is wrong (with me)? But I am finally included. This means that we are doing everything right,” Miller said through his spokesman, Reuters reported.

The United States’ new anti-Russian sanctions cover those biggest Russian businesses that refuse to play to Washington’s scenario, the Russian embassy in the United States said in a statement on Friday, TASS reports.

"Washington has delivered yet another blow on the Russian-US relations. Now, the sanctions cover captains of Russian business who refuse to play to Washington’s scenario," the embassy said.

The U.S. sanctions are seen as an erroneous step killing the freedom of enterprise and competition and impairing integration processes in the global economy, according to the embassy.

"The United States has made yet another erroneous step to destroy the freedom of enterprise and competition, to impair integration processes in the global economy," the embassy said.
