He was brought before Congress in early August, 2018 the documents called for sanctions against Russia’s new debt, transactions with investment and energy projects of Russian companies, as well as restrictive measures against politicians and businessmen, “directly or indirectly promote illegal actions in the interests of Vladimir Putin.”
