Russia's federal budget is prepared for the possible toughening of US sanctions. However, if they include the seizure of Russia's foreign exchange reserves, it would be regarded as a "declaration of a financial war," the Russian finance ministry warns.
"If our gold and currency reserves can be arrested, even if such a thought exists, it would be financial terrorism," said Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov.
