The U.S. Senate voted for the consideration of the resolution, which condemns the plans of Trump’s administration to ease the sanctions against Russian companies related to oligarch Oleg Deripaska as Reuters reported.

It is stated that some of Republicans joined Democrats to proceed this resolution. However, it also should be considered by the Senate, House of Representatives and avoid the possible veto of Trump.

Officials of Trump’s administration, such as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell make all possible efforts to eliminate the resolution. But still, some of Republicans are not sure which final decision they should make, while Democrats’ representatives insist on the fact that the sanctions cannot be eased when Russia still acts aggressively against Ukraine and especially amid the emerging facts on Russia’s interference into American presidential elections in 2016.

Moreover, it was found out that Deripaska, who has stakes at such companies as aluminum company Rusal, its parent, En+, and power firm EuroSibEnergo, is tied with Paul Manafort, the ex-advisor of Trump’s election campaign earlier accused of ties with Russian agent and sharing polling data with Moscow.
