The U.S. State Department has reported that sanctions against Russia in connection with "business by Skripalya" will come into force approximately on August 27, and waited for them this week. Why introduction of restrictive measures was transferred?

RIA Novosti with reference to the unnamed State Department Spokesperson reports about it. There is no confirmation of information on the website of the department. At the beginning of August of the USA announced introduction of two packages of chemical anti-Russian sanctions: a "draconian" package in three months and soft, symbolical measures "around August 22". The reason of a delay wasn't called; the main version — a bureaucratic delay, another — the White House just hasn't managed to prepare measures because of scandals over the president Donald Trump.
