American anti-Russian sanctions mean ‘war’
MOSCOW: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said that with the adoption of the law on new anti-Russian sanctions, the US had declared a “fully-fledged trade war” on Russia, and now there is no hope for an improvement in relations with the new administration.
“The signing by the US President (Donald Trump) of a new sanctions law against Russia creates several consequences: first, the hope of improving our relations with the new US administration is dead. Second, US declared a fully-fledged trade war on Russia,” Medvedev wrote on his Facebook blog.
“Third, the Trump administration demonstrated complete impotence by humiliatingly transferring executive powers to the Congress, which changes the balance of power in US political circles.”
On Wednesday, Trump signed into law the measure that imposes sweeping sanctions on Russia, North Korea and Iran. Sputnik
