Senator Klimov assessed the plans of US congressmen to exclude sanctions against Russia from the budget the US defense budget. He shared his opinion with RIA Novosti.
The senator noted that the American parliament understands the harm that restrictions are for the United States itself.
Earlier on December 7, it became known that the US defense budget for the coming fiscal year was presented without sanctions against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Judging by the document, the American authorities did not impose restrictions either against the gas pipeline, or against the state debt of Russia, or against Russian individuals suspected of violating human rights.
