Everything you need to know as Russian Federation retaliates over USA sanctions bill”

Moscow has already responded, ordering a reduction in the number of U.S. diplomats in Russian Federation and closing the U.S. Embassy's recreation retreat.

Russia's tit-for-tat decision to expel hundreds of United States diplomats and seize two USA compounds may be an acknowledgment in Moscow that Trump's ability to bring better ties is limited, at best, and the start of a new downward spiral in relations.

Nothing more than a desire "to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine" stands behind the European sanctions on Moscow, the German foreign minister said, stressing that "if the Russian leadership makes a move and we are finally able to make progress as regards implementing the Minsk agreements, it is also conceivable that these sanctions will be gradually eased".

Earlier in the day, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump Administration supports strong sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. If passed by the Senate as expected, the bill would be sent to the White House for Trump to sign or veto.

Rejecting the bill would have further galvanized resistance against the President and deepened concerns about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. And he let a challenge from Putin, who said Trump accepted his denial of Russian involvement in the 2016 election, go largely unanswered.

In response to the bill, Russian Federation announced that it was expelling American diplomats and seizing property, reports CNN. However, Putin at that point took a magnanimous tone, saying they could stay and that he would await Trump's inauguration before taking further action. But attempts like this to make Trump sound tough on Russian Federation are unconvincing. Friday's exchange over United States diplomats in Russia is "not the last thing the Russians are going to do and it's not the last thing we're going to do". She didn't specify the "critical elements", and lawmakers have said the White House was largely absent as they crafted the legislation.


"The US Bill could have unintended unilateral effects that impact the EU's energy security interests". They fear the new sanctions could hinder key energy projects in Europe and further inflame internal European Union divisions. We must not forget what is at stake: We want to overcome the conflict in eastern Ukraine. We agree that it needs political pressure on Moscow.

"Our stance remains that we will not accept any extraterritorial use whatsoever of these United States sanctions against European companies. Policy sanctions are neither a suitable nor an adequate instrument for the promotion of national export interests and the domestic energy sector".
