US President Donald Trump's support for anti-Russian sanctions is a political game with US Congress to maintain the right to lift such restrictions, Vladimir Dzhabarov, the first deputy chairman of the Russian Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee, told Sputnik on Tuesday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short said that Trump's administration was fully supportive of the sanctions bill, but was concerned that the legislation lacked national security waivers, which were present in such bills in the past.
"By expressing support for anti-Russian sanctions, Donald Trump makes some concessions to the Congress, trying to preserve the right to lift the restrictions," Dzhabarov said, adding that US president's actions were a political game.
The lawmaker noted that in the West people spoke more often about the disadvantages of sanctions than before.
Businessmen are looking for ways to avoid the restriction creating news opportunities for cooperation, Dzhabarov concluded.
On June 15, the US Senate approved new sanctions against Russia in connection to its alleged meddling in the US presidential election in 2016. In particular, it is supposed to limit the financing period for sanctioned Russian banks to 14 days, and for sanctioned oil and gas sector companies to 30 days.
The bill also presupposes the possibility of sanctions against persons who intend to invest more than $5 million per year or $1 million at a time in the construction of Russian export pipelines or provide projects with services, technology and information support.
The sanctions, which are yet to be approved by both the House of Representatives and the administration of US President Donald Trump, have already prompted criticism within the European Union.
