Russian Federation will retaliate if sanctions are signed into law: Putin

Posted July 29, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump could veto pending legislation which would slap new sanctions on Russian Federation, in order to push for a tougher deal, a top White House aide said on Thursday.

Putin further said that the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the USA by the outgoing Obama administration, "the sanctions are illegal in terms of worldwide law".

Putin's comments came days after the House voted 419 to 3 to approve legislation that would direct the president to impose sanctions against Iran, keep in place current sanctions against Russian Federation and modify the president's authority to impose sanctions against North Korea.

The bill, which includes a provision that allows Congress to stop any effort by Mr Trump to ease existing sanctions on Russian Federation, will now be sent to the White House for the President to sign into law or veto.

Earlier on Thursday, a senior White House aide said Trump could veto the pending legislation in order to push for a tougher deal, an idea that drew skepticism in Congress because his administration had spent weeks lobbying for a weaker bill.

Even then, he was only able to complete 6 of his 11 passes for 96 yards and no touchdowns. Jones was notably underutilized during team activities and minicamp in Buffalo.

If 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.

Earlier this week, the US House of Representatives of the US Congress approved nearly unanimously the draft law to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation, as well as North Korea and Iran.

Republicans and Democrats have pushed for more sanctions partly as a response to conclusions by US intelligence agencies that the Kremlin interfered in the election. The House, Senate and Justice Department are also investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to sway the election in their favour.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov already declared that Russia viewed the new draft law at the US Congress "extremely negatively".

The White House's rhetoric on the sanctions bill echoes that surrounding the president's controversial decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, which includes 194 countries.

New sanctions could cloud Russia's economic outlook just as the economy is showing growth potential for the first time in three years.

Trump's concerns include a provision letting Congress stop any effort to ease existing sanctions on Russian Federation.

"As you know, we are behaving very calmly and patiently but we will have to respond at a certain point".

While world politics and environmental issues dominated the press conference after the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto on Thursday, Finnish analysts identified Putin's implicit messages related to the role of Finland.

"Because this is an obvious attempt to use geopolitical advantages in competition to pursue its economic interests at the expense of its allies", Putin said, apparently referring to the EU's concerns over the newly proposed United States sanctions on Russian Federation. "It's impossible to endlessly tolerate impudence directed at your country".

"The cooperation of Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China in its entirety, including the military component, is a critical element of global security and stability", Putin said.
