Earlier it became known that the U. S. Congress goes on vacation till November 6 and, most likely, the new package of restrictive measures against Russia won't manage to approve. However, Trump's administration can sign the relevant decree and without senators Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail Fomichev/TASS In the U.S. Department of the Treasury was told that can't apply the same restrictive measures against Russia, as against DPRK or Iran. The Russian economy much on a more substantial scale is also better built-in in the international financial system and trade. It is said in the report of the assistant Finance Minister Marshall Billingsley posted on the website of the department. What similar statements are still connected with? About it in Georgy Bovt's comment. The speech of the representative of the Ministry of Finance of the USA Marshall Billingsley before senators has taken place within the report on the course of implementation of sanctions against Russia, Iran and DPRK. The report hasn't been designed to tell to legislators of future actions of the White House. Specification of the ministry of an occasion of limited potential of sanctions pressure upon Russia is, first of all, the response to constant charges of the congress against Trump's administration that it, say, "is too soft to Russians". This answer is illustrated with numerous examples of sanctions against the Russian companies and natural persons, since 2014. As for the new legislation, in the U. S. Congress there is even not one bill of new tougher sanctions against Russia now. Sooner or later such law will be for certain adopted.

So far, in particular, the ban on operations with new issues of the Russian sovereign debt obligations, disconnection of state banks from operations with dollars and also drastic measures against the energy sector is provided. However owing to the intense schedule of work of the senate in August when bills have appeared, it was clear that to November elections accept them can not to be in time. It would be made in case there would be a sharp aggravation of the anti-Russian rhetoric against the background of any events. Then could give to the anti-Russian legislation green light and accept on expedited procedure. Recently new charges and any facts that Russia conducts cyberactivity aren't heard and interferes with the course of an election campaign in the USA. In Syria (one more painful point) government troops have postponed decisive approach to the last stronghold of Islamists in Idlib Governorate around what in the West the easy information hysterics already inflamed. It is possible that it has resulted not only arrangements of Moscow and Ankara, but also following the results of secret contacts with Americans. Even investigation of team of the special prosecutor Müller on intervention of Russians in elections of 2016 has somehow lost a former fuse after the Deputy Prosecutor General Rob Rozenstayn has been discredited. At last, the Senate of the USA has got bogged down in hearings concerning the statement of the new member of the Supreme Court nominated by Trump which have poured out as it was already led, in the rough scan
