Russian Federation retaliates on sanctions by cutting U.S. embassy staff

Irune Rengel | 29 Julio, 2017, 15:39

Putin made his comments at a news conference as the U.S. Senate prepared to pass sanctions legislation, which already sailed through the House, which would make it impossible for President Donald Trump to weaken any sanctions on Russian Federation without congressional approval.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly denied the conclusions of United States intelligence agencies that Moscow interfered using cyberattacks. The irony, of course, is that Russian Federation has brought this upon itself through its actions in Ukraine and during the US election campaign. The bill is expected to garner enough support in both chambers to override any veto.

The sanctions measure has already passed the House of Representatives by a 419-3.

"Not only are the Democrats to a man and woman against any form of improving ties because they are angry about Russia's election interference, but a lot of Republicans are concerned as well", Stent said. Trump denies any collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a phone call later on Friday that Moscow was forced to respond to what he described as "illegal sanctions against Russia, libelous statements against it, a massive expulsion of diplomats and expropriation of our diplomatic property". The incessant stream of investigations into ties between the US president's family and close advisors and different Russian individuals-plus the 2016 election-has made Russia a toxic subject in Washington, DC.

"The legislation would target the Russian energy sector, which is controlled by Vladimir Putin's cronies, with sanctions on investments in Russian petroleum and natural gas development as well as Russian energy pipelines", he added.

Iran and North Korea are being penalised over their ballistic missile tests. The sanctions also apply to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps security force. Trump's new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, hedged the inevitability that Trump will sign, telling CNN's New Day on Thursday that the president "may sign the sanctions exactly the way they are or he may veto the sanctions and negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians".

Trump has yet to sign off on the package.

An official in the White House wouldn't say whether Trump would sign it, saying only that they are reviewing the bill and that the administration supports sanctions against the three countries. It's now awaiting Presidet Donald Trump's signature.

Trump can impose new sanctions at any time through an executive order.

"Discussions [of sanctions] should start now between the United States and the EU".

And the new bill puts the President in a hard position as he will now have to decide whether to accept the measures or veto them and anger his own Republican Party.

At the top of Russia's wish list is an easing of United States sanctions imposed for its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and its destabilization of eastern Ukraine, something the Senate action would all but rule out.

"This kind of blackmail aimed at restricting the cooperation between Russian Federation and other nations is a threat for many countries and global businesses", the statement said.

Russian Federation announced that it was expelling American diplomats and seizing property after Congress passed the bill.
