It is unclear, it will consolidate whether the document has already entered the White house the sanctions or force a future President trump to introduce a new
A group of senators from both parties is preparing a bill on additional sanctions on the line of the Congress against Russia in connection with its hacker attacks on U.S. institutions and actions in Ukraine and Syria.
Legislators confirmed this information, when the Senate convened for a new session of Congress.
Senator Ben Cardin, a leading Democrat in the foreign relations Committee, told reporters on Capitol hill on Tuesday that he is working on a bill along with the “wider group” of senators, which includes Democrats and Republicans.
He expressed hope that the bill will be promulgated this week.
“This is a comprehensive bill that will include congressional authorization for the imposition of additional sanctions against Russia,” said Cardin.
The white house and the U.S. intelligence community believe that Russia tried to interfere in the election in the United States with the help of hacker attacks on the political organizations of the Democratic party and attempts to sow distrust of the US government.
In response to these actions inappropriate, according to the U.S. government treatment of U.S. diplomats abroad, the White house last week sent 35 Russian diplomats.
Cardin said that the bill will be partially focused on Russia’s actions in Eastern Europe, including the annexation of Ukrainian Crimea and its role in the middle East, where Moscow supports the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
Cardin did not specify force if the bill is elected President of Donald trump to make a decision on sanctions or he will strengthen those sanctions which were announced by the White house last week that trump will be able to cancel after taking office.
“It will Supplement [the actions of the White house] and go on, – said Senator Cardin. – It is a Supplement, but there is a principle of separation of powers”.
