Declining to directly comment on an “oil-for-goods” deal with Iran, Peskov said on Tuesday, “The U.S. threatens sanctions for practically anything Russia does; this is not a restraining factor.” 
 
On August 5, Moscow and Tehran signed a five-year memorandum of understanding that could allow Iran to sell its crude to Russia and use the proceeds to buy Russian oil drilling equipment and other technology. 
 
Few days later, U.S. Treasury Department’s Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen said that the U.S. may introduce new sanctions against Russian companies due to the recently signed oil deal.
