The economic sanctions, imposed on Russia by the United States, are not working, said US Senator Ron Johnson, who visited Russia with a delegation of US congressmen on June 30 - July 5. reports citing Russian media.

"On the ground, they don't seem to be having a real horrible economic effect," he told Washington Examiner.
"You do something and nobody ever sits back and analyzes, 'Well, is it working?’" the senator said. "And I think you'd be hard-pressed to say that sanctions against Russia are really working all that well."
At the same time, the senator said he does not favor lifting sanctions, but suggests revising them.
"My sense is that the targeted sanctions to the oligarchs, to the members of government, are the ones that really sting and probably [offer] the best chance of affecting their behavior," he said.
The senator said that after his visit he was trying to find ways to build trust between the two nations.
