U.S. Senate approves new sanctions against Russia

WASHINGTON. July 28 (Interfax) - The U.S. Senate has approved a bill envisaging additional sanctions against Russia, and also Iran and North Korea.

Ninety-eight senators voted for the bill and two voted against it, an Interfax correspondent has reported.

The bill was passed by the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress on Tuesday. The bill will now be submitted to U.S. President Donald Trump to be signed.

Specifically, the bill envisages the imposition of sanctions against various industries of the Russian economy. Besides, it proposes codification of the already existing restrictions, which will deprive the U.S. administration of the possibility of making independent decisions on the future of the existing sanctions against Russia.

In accordance with the document, Washington will still oppose the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, alleging that it negatively impacts the energy security of the European Union, the development of the gas market in Central and Eastern Europe and the Ukrainian reforms in the sphere of energy. The bill provides that the sanctions should not affect U.S.-Russian cooperation in the space sphere.
