The U.S. is to impose additional sanctions against Russia due to the use of the chemical weapon. Deputy Press Secretary of State Department Robert Palladino stated that at a briefing. Yet, Washington still has to diligently estimate the effect of these sanctions on the national security, as Voice of America reported.

'We have done everything required by the law – we have informed the Congress…As the process develops, we will be meeting the requirements of the law,' Palladino noted.

He did not specify the exact time of imposition of new sanctions. According to him, it is a 'long process'; he added that the U.S. wanted to impose sanctions 'in full accordance with the law'.

The U.S. reasoned the sanctions by the fact that Russia does not observe the provisions of the 1991 American law on prohibition of the use of the chemical and biological weapons. It is supposed that the sanctions might come into force on November 27.
