Media: the second package of anti-Russian sanctions the United States can take three months
MOSCOW, 8 Aug — RIA Novosti. The second package of U.S. sanctions against Russia in connection with the incident in Salisbury can be adopted in three months, reports channel NBC, citing sources in the American administration.
To avoid the expansion of sanctions, Russia needs to ensure that it will not use chemical weapons in the future.
A second round of sanctions may include a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations, a ban on flights in the United States by the Russian airline “Aeroflot” and the almost total cessation of U.S. exports, notes the TV channel.
Earlier, the state Department said that US sanctions because of alleged use of chemical weapons of the Russian Federation in Salisbury will enter into force on 22 August.
