OREANDA-NEWS The US House of Representatives approved the initiative to impose sanctions on Russian sovereign debt.

According to Sherman, it is about the impossibility for American citizens to make new deals with the national debt of Russia. There is also a mechanism for lifting these sanctions if the US administration concludes that Russia did not intervene in the American elections at least during one election cycle, and if Congress agrees with this conclusion.

It is noted that the draft defense budget has not yet been approved. The document must be approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate, after which it will be sent for signature to the head of state Donald Trump.
