The U.S. Senate on Thursday, July 27, approved a bill on additional sanctions against Russia and Iran and North Korea.
As reported by «Interfax», the document was supported by 98 senators, two voted against.
Now the bill, which on Tuesday was approved by the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress, arrives at the signature of the President of the United States Donald Trump.
New sanctions in the case of adoption may be the most extensive and complex since the beginning of 2014, when due to events in Crimea and Ukraine, the United States adopted a package of restrictive measures against Russian individuals and legal entities, notes RIA Novosti.
The white house has signaled that it generally supports the bill, which will significantly limit the President’s powers in matters of sanctions policy. In particular, the document includes a paragraph requiring the President subject to confirmation by the legislators of any mitigation or cancellation of sanctions.
