"The signing by the US president of a new sanctions law against Russia creates several consequences: firstly, the hope of improving our relations with the new US administration is dead. Secondly, US declared a fully-fledged trade war on Russia. Thirdly, the Trump administration demonstrated complete impotence by humiliatingly transferring executive powers to Congress, which changes the balance of power in US political circles," Medvedev wrote in his Facebook blog.
