Putin: New sanctions will 'complicate' Russia-US ties

Putin: New sanctions will 'complicate' Russia-US ties

The amendment reportedly has not thrilled the White House, which wants to retain its unilateral authority to impose and lift sanctions. This amendment makes clear that we will not continue to tolerate such actions, and I am glad we are one step closer to passage of our legislation to hold Iran accountable. The bill would require a congressional review if President Donald Trump attempts to ease or end penalties against Moscow. That measure reflected Republican complaints that Obama had overstepped the power of the presidency and needed to be checked by Congress.

While Corker was measured, other Republican and Democrat senators said Russian Federation needed to understand the USA position on its election interference. "Pretty good rate of return". The bill also included a suite of sanctions against Iran. Two Obama era State Department officials were alarmed at the review and told Senators Ben Cardin and Lindsey Graham that it appeared the president wanted to lift sanctions on Russian Federation.

In addition to new sanctions, the bill would prevent President Trump from lifting sanctions on Russian Federation without congressional approval. Rouhani is a political moderate who defeated a hard-line opponent. Crossing what's become a large partisan divide in Washington, the sanctions passed 97-2 as part of a bill that has also taken aim at Iran, a strong ally of Russia's.

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. He's instead castigated his own intelligence community and rejected its assessment that Russia's hacking and disinformation campaign was meant to aid his candidacy.

Lawmakers said they're responding to Russia's involvement in Ukraine and meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, and to Iran's development of a ballistic missile program, support for terrorism and violations of human rights. "These additional sanctions will also send a powerful and bipartisan statement to Russian Federation and any other country who might try to interfere in our elections that they will be punished".

The price was R1.23 billion and was paid directly to Bankorp shareholders which is why Absa should not be expected to pay again. She ordered steps to be taken enabling the government to recover R1.125 billion in misappropriated public funds from ABSA Bank.


Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the author of the bill, told reporters he hoped President Donald Trump would "acknowledge" the near-unanimous support among senators for tougher actions against Iran and Russian Federation.

Specifically, the legislation prohibits the U.S. State Department from returning two Russian diplomatic compounds seized by the Obama administration in response to Russia's election hacking.

The penalties have been criticized by Austria and Germany for promoting US economic interests.

The Trump administration is reviewing the Senate measure, according to a White House official, who asked for anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
