Russian Federation suspends USA embassy use of diplomatic properties in Moscow

Russian Federation suspends USA embassy use of diplomatic properties in Moscow

German Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer said the USA isn't entitled to tell European companies how to do business with a third country, but the legislation has improved from the original proposal.

Obama also ordered Russia's Foreign Ministry to leave two compounds it owns in Maryland and NY.

But the debate over the new measures has taken place against the backdrop of an ongoing investigation into alleged Russian meddling the in the 2016 presidential election.

If Mr Trump chooses to veto it, the bill is expected to garner enough support in both chambers to override his veto and pass it into law. It also toughens sanctions on Iran and North Korea. It aims to hit Putin and the oligarchs close to him by targeting Russian corruption, human rights abusers, and crucial sectors of the Russian economy, including weapons sales and energy exports.

Savonlinna: Russian president Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Moscow will ultimately have to respond to sanctions imposed by the United States that he condemned as insolent towards Russia.

The Kremlin on Wednesday refrained from discussing its possible response to a new package of US sanctions against Russian Federation before President Donald Trump signs them into law.

"We continue to support strong sanctions against those three countries, and we're going to wait and see what that final legislation looks like and make a decision at that point", she told reporters.

There was no definite word on when the Senate might vote on the bill but lawmakers said they thought a vote could be as soon as Friday.

The White House said in June Trump had no intention of firing Mueller.

"Imposing sanctions that hit a third party, namely Europe, and at the same time promoting the American economy with the slogan "buy American gas" - that's pretty striking", said Kurt Bock, chief executive of Germans chemicals giant BASF, which drills for gas in Russian Federation.

"We request that our American counterparts bring the number of diplomatic and technical staff at the US Embassy in Moscow, the consulates general in St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, into strict correspondence with the number of Russian diplomats and technical staff now working in the United States, until September 1, 2017", Russia said in a statement.
