Moscow sees Washington as a source of danger and makes decisions based on this understanding. On Wednesday, July 26, TASS said Deputy foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Ryabkov. Thus he commented on the vote in the House of representatives on the bill on toughening unilateral sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea.
According to him, the bill is a deliberate choice by the enemies of Russia in the United States, which “completely unbelted and do not know restraint in his rage”. “It is necessary to understand and act in accordance with this understanding: balanced, reasonable and calm.”
Ryabkov also said that Washington’s actions step to the destruction of prospects for the normalization of relations with Moscow. “What is happening does not fit into common sense,” he concluded.
July 25, the house of representatives by an overwhelming majority of 419 against three voted for the bill providing introduction of new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. Then the document must be received in the Senate and then signed by the President.
In the case of a law us companies and individuals will not be allowed to lend to Russian banks for more than 14 days. Now this term is 90 days. It is also proposed to limit the terms of financing of Russian oil and gas companies — they will set the credit period of 30 days.
