New sanctions had to begin to work since August 22 with the Photo: Leah Millis/Reuters Is updated in 15:08B the beginning of August the U.S. Department of State announced introduction of two new packages of the anti-Russian sanctions for estimated participation of Moscow in poisoning in the British city of Salisbury of the former officer of GRU Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The first sanctions had to earn since Wednesday. "Sanctions will come into force after the publication in the Federal register of the USA around August 22" — it was noted on the website of State Department. However at the moment there is no relevant document still. The main component — a total ban for export to Russia of dual-use goods, now they are delivered according to licenses under each concrete transaction. The second package died which in Washington was called "draconian", activate in November in case Moscow refuses to cooperate in business of prohibition of chemical weapon. Among other things the second wave of restrictive measures means the ban on flights of Aeroflot in the USA. The reason of a delay of the first package is unknown, the Federal register of the USA can be updated at any time. Perhaps, in the White House have been too engaged with the political storm storming around Donald Trump. The delay of sanctions was commented by professor of MGIMO Valery Solovey: — I believe, it is only about a technical hitch. It is necessary to give itself counting that the State Department is a bureaucratic machinery with all her merits and demerits. There would be a miracle if they announced sanctions on August 22. — Whether some surprises are possible? — It is unlikely. The matter is that this actually automatic action, the so-called "chemical bill" which has been fulfilled for the first time in 1991 in relation to Saddam Hussein's regime. Nothing new is expected. — Associations are, of course, not the most pleasant. — Well what to do? So a part of world politics sees Russia. Yes, association unpleasant, but, unfortunately, consequences will be very annoying too. — Moscow will react? — Certainly, Moscow will react, it prepares for this reaction. In the Kremlin all day long there are meetings on this occasion. Wait for what will be announced by Americans, depending on it there will be reactions. As you understand, most likely, she will be asymmetric. — What moods in Moscow concerning the events? — Judging by economic dynamics, official and informal Moscow prepares for the worst. Matter not only in "the chemical bill", there everything is just clear, and in the two-party bill of senators which, most likely, will be adopted before intermediate elections. — Whether correctly I understand that it is that bill which is called "infernal"? Exactly. There for us potential it is more problems, than in "the chemical bill". — It is possible to escape somehow from this situation? — Proceeding from the current situation of things, it is absolutely impossible as it would mean for Russia has rubbed
