Senators John McCain and Ben Cardin, in a letter addressed to the US President, said that the Trump administration hasn’t yet started implementing the new sanctions law, signed two months ago, as reported by Reuters

“Now, as critical deadlines are approaching, it is imperative that your Administration implement the law to its fullest extent to uphold and protect American interests,” the letter said.

The letter also emphasized that the administration is to issue “regulations or other guidance” to identify anyone who is operating on behalf of the Russian defense and intelligence services for potential sanctions by October 1.

Trump was unwilling to sign the part of the law that imposes more sanctions on Russia. He was also against the limitations of the President’s right to lift sanctions. However, due to the strong support of the law, the President signed it.

As it was reported earlier today, Russian banking and energy sectors are facing tightening of sanctions.
