Putin says Russian Federation will respond to 'insolence' of USA sanctions

Putin says Russian Federation will respond to 'insolence' of USA sanctions

But because of the provisions that limit the President's authority on sanctions against Russian Federation, the White House has been reluctant to endorse the effort, as hours before the vote, officials were still refusing to say whether President Trump would veto this bill.

After the adoption of the document called "the Law on counteraction to enemies of America by sanctions", the Senate, it must be approved by the head of state.

"Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking ahead of the Senate vote, accused USA lawmakers of 'insolence' and promised retaliation if the sanctions become law", as NPR's Scott Neuman reported Thursday.

The sanctions bill, which includes sanctions on Iran and North Korea, passed the Senate by a margin of 98-2 and then stalled in the House.

The legislation bars Trump from easing or waiving the penalties on Russian Federation unless Congress agrees.

President Donald Trump may veto the Russian Federation sanctions bill expected to pass the House.

President Trump will now have to decide whether to sign it into law or veto it.

Under the cloud of the Russian Federation imbroglio and the strong support in Congress for a tougher line on Russian Federation, it will be hard for Trump to veto the measure without appearing to play into the hands of his critics.

His comments come as Russian Federation announced Friday that it would seize US diplomatic properties and expel scores of USA diplomats and other staff members.

Stung by new American sanctions, Russia's Foreign Ministry says the us must downsize its diplomatic and technical staff in Moscow and other cities. News of the talk came in the wake of reports that Donald Trump, Jr., met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign after being told he could gather damaging information about Hillary Clinton in the meeting.

The votes for passage would far exceed the two-thirds supermajorities needed in each chamber to override a presidential veto.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump would sign the bill, but only after having negotiated "critical elements" of it. "The Senate must act quickly on the legislation from the House", Schumer said. "It's impossible to endlessly tolerate this boorishness towards our country", Putin told a joint news conference with his Finnish counterpart.

Former President Barack Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian estates at the end of December 2016 due to Russia's alleged interference. "And now these sanctions - they are also absolutely unlawful from the point of view of worldwide law".
