The house of representatives of the us Congress delayed a vote on sanctions against Russia
Moscow. June 20. INTERFAX.RU — Republican Leaders in the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress sent a bill to the new unilateral American sanctions against Russia to study in the foreign Affairs Committee, told the Associated Press.
Earlier the bill was passed by the U.S. Senate.
This caused the dissatisfaction of a number of congressmen, including Republicans. In particular, the representative of the Democrats in the Committee on foreign Affairs Eliot Engel believes that the postponement of the vote could give President Donald Trump and his team “to weaken the bill.”
“The Republican leadership should, without delay, to consider the bill, to the house of representatives voted for it and sent to the President for signature,” — said in a statement the Congressman.
He added that otherwise, “the White house will have time to loosen the key measures that are designed to attract the Kremlin to justice.”
