US Congress published a new bill on sanctions against Russia and Iran, which was introduced to the House of Representatives on July 12. The text of the document is published on the official website of the Congress.
The document was co-authored by the leader of the democratic minority in the lower house of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, her deputy Steny Hoyer, and the senior member of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, Democrat Eliot Engel.
It was previously reported that the US Senate adopted a bill against the Russian Federation and Iran. One of the main points introduced in the bill is a ban on US President Donald Trump to remove or mitigate sanctions without the approval of the Congress. The procedure for its adoption in Congress was suspended through a constitutional requirement that all legislative initiatives that relate to budgetary provisions should be approved first in the lower, then in the upper chamber.
We recall that the draft law includes the introduction of both individual and sectoral sanctions against the Russian Federation, and also fixes existing restrictions against Russia, depriving the president of the right to cancel their action without the approval of the US Congress.
