The aspiration to punish once again Moscow at the moment not the main priority of work of legislators therefore new anti-Russian sanctions until the end of the year can not accept Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS the Bloomberg Agency with reference to sources in the U. S. Congress, including a number of senators and their assistants, reported that the new law on sanctions against Russia, most likely, will not be adopted until the end of this year as legislators are engaged with other questions — formation of the budget and maintenance costs of the government, appointments in judicial authority and adoption of more urgent laws. Whether it is possible to consider that now the kongressovsky legislation on the anti-Russian sanctions is postponed indefinitely? About it is in Georgy Bovt's comment. Two bills of sanctions are under consideration of the congress now. They were set in motion right after Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump's summit in Helsinki which results revolted the American establishment. There is senatorial bill S.2313 known as DETER Act ("The law on protection of elections against threats by carrying out red line"). The English abbreviation of the name of the bill — DETER — is conformable to the word "constrain". It was brought by the democrat Chris Van Hollen and the republican Marco Rubio. The project provides the ban of dollar transactions with the Russian state banks, arrest of accounts of the Russian energy companies like Gazprom and Rosneft, the ban on the address of new issues of a public debt. It was supposed that sanctions are imposed automatically in 30 days after the report of intelligence agencies on attempts of intervention in the American elections. However, already a number of provisions of this bill were perceived as excessively rigid, compared them to "tactical nuclear weapon". Besides the registered mode of imposition of sanctions laid aside the White House and State Department. Other senatorial bill S.3336 introduced by two-party group led by Lindsay Graham and Bob Menendez also provides sanctions against new issues of a public debt, blocking of accounts and transactions of the national Russian banks, personal sanctions against the politicians and oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin, and also the ban on any investments into the Russian energy projects. Was considered that the second bill nicknamed "infernal sanctions" had more chances of passing. In an early autumn senators who are directly involved in work on this bill warned the assistants that those did not go on leave in the fall for the period of the election campaign, and were ready to work on the text tensely. However then it became clear that before intermediate elections will not manage to accept it all the same. On it it was not carried out any hearing. Now the intense agenda of work of the leaving congress prevents to adopt the law about new year. And, probably, not only it. It seems that a heat of supporters of sanctions pressure upon Russia a little поугас, and they decided to grant executive power so far the right to be the soloist as it, actually, always and was
