Vote on U.S. De­ci­sion to Lift Sanc­tions on Rus­sia Firms

Iran News - - INTERNATIONAL -

WASH­ING­TON (Reuters) - U.S. Se­nate Demo­cratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on Satur­day he will force a vote soon on a res­o­lu­tion to dis­ap­prove the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion to re­lax sanc­tions on three Rus­sian com­pa­nies con­nected to oli­garch Oleg Deri­paska.

“I have con­cluded that the Trea­sury Depart­ment’s pro­posal is flawed and fails to suf­fi­ciently limit Oleg Deri­paska’s con­trol and in­flu­ence of these com­pa­nies and the Se­nate should move to block this mis­guided ef­fort by the Trump Ad­min­is­tra­tion and keep these sanc­tions in place,” Schumer said in a news re­lease.
