The US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, during a press conference said that more economic sanctions would be imposed on Russia.
Mr. Blinken said that Russia’s oil and gas industry has been restricted and the sanctions on many financial institutions had a severe impact on the country.
He added that the effects of these sanctions are not limited to today, it will last for years.
Blinken addressing Putin said that he had made a mistake relating to the reaction of the US.
The United States and Europe have announced sanctions to punish Russia for its military attack on Ukraine.
The West has warned that if the attacks are not stopped, sanctions will be heavier and heavier.
