U.S. won’t be able to contain Russia by using sanctions - Putin

"This goal won’t be achieved," he stressed.

The sanctions only have the goal of containing Russia rather than to solve real problems, but this policy won’t bring any results, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Answering a question on the possible sanctions against Moscow over its position on Syria, Putin said: "The goal of these sanctions is not in solving anything but to contain Russia’s strengthening as a full-fledged participant of international activity."

"This goal won’t be achieved," he stressed.
