MOSCOW (Sputnik) — An overwhelming majority (97 percent) of German companies working in Russia expressed their opposition to new US sanctions against Moscow, a poll showed on Wednesday.
"German business in Russia rejects the US sanctions bill, which was adopted unilaterally," Seele stressed.
The poll also showed that 52 percent of members of the Chamber believed that the US restrictive measures could affect their businesses.
On August 2, US President Donald Trump signed a bill on new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, with new restrictive measures targeting Russia's financial and energy sectors. The new sanctions, in particular, target Russian energy projects. The step triggered criticism from some EU officials.
