The EU is concerned that the U.S. takes measures to increase sanction pressure on the Kremlin without counseling with the bloc’s leaders. Brussels considers retaliatory action in response to Washington’s sanctions on Russia – if they have any impact on EU companies, the Financial Times wrote.

Head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker prepared a note to be presented at the Commission’s nearest session; according to the note, Brussels should be ready to take action within a few days.

On July 22, U.S. Congress released a text of draft bill, offering individual and sector sanctions against Iran and Russia. One of the document’s provisions forbids U.S. president to soften or cancel sanctions without the approval by the Congress.
