In Congress introduced a bill that would allow cancelling the decree of Donald trump on the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions. The sanctions regime, according to the document, can be mitigated only if the decision will be approved by Congress
The bill, which will impose a veto on the possible removal of President Donald trump sanctions against Russia, introduced by the house of representatives of the Congress of the United States, writes Financial Times.
“This is a serious national security issue,” said Democrat Steni Hoyer, expressing hope that both houses of Congress will support the introduction of a veto on a possible solution trump.
In early February, a similar bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate. The document States that if the White house wants to lift sanctions against Russia, he first have to provide to Congress a detailed justification for this decision. In turn, lawmakers will be able to 120 days to agree or disagree with the decision of the President.
The next day after you make your first bill in Congress, White house spokesman Sean Spicer said that the US does not intend to withdraw from Moscow sanctions imposed in connection with the annexation of Crimea, “while the Peninsula remains part of Russia”.
