Trump should veto new Russian Federation sanctions

Russian President Vladimir Putin was highly critical of the US Senate's vote this past week to impose a new round of sanctions against Russia, cautioning that it would "complicate Russia-American relations" and would be very harmful to bilateral ties.

The Russian president was not pleased.

On top of that, European Union nations, particularly Germany, have been very critical of the proposed sanctions threatening to target investors in Russia's energy sector, as Europe is heavily dependent on Russian Federation for natural gas.

Portugal has won six of its last seven games, with the only setback coming in a 3-2 loss against Sweden in a friendly in March. Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said his team deserved their point but admitted there was work to be done going forward.

Addressing reporters in Berlin on June 16, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert described the US move as "peculiar".

ADVERTISEMENT "This is not something the administration is calling for us to do", Brown said of the stronger sanctions.

Despite allegations by the U.S. intelligence community that Moscow played a role in the presidential vote last November, Trump has supported improving relations with America's former Cold War foe.

Shortly after the Senate voted Wednesday to slap new sanctions on key sectors of Russia's economy over "interference in the 2016 USA elections" and aggression in Syria and Ukraine, in a joint statement Austria's Chancellor Christian Kern and Germany's Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said it appeared that the Senate bill was aimed at securing United States energy jobs and pushing out Russian gas deliveries to Europe. And they warned the threat of fining European companies participating in the Nord Stream 2 project "introduces a completely new, very negative dimension into European-American relations." .

The bill now moves on to the House, and it must eventually be signed into law by President Trump.

By tying Iran and Russian Federation together, Congress has made it more hard for Trump to oppose the action as the president, who has been highly critical of Iran, would have to reject the tougher sanctions against Tehran if it rejected other parts of the legislation.

Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid?
More glory here in Russian Federation will end any doubt about him winning a fifth Ballon d'Or . Real Madrid said on Thursday that they were confident the Portuguese forward had acted legally.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to express concern about the bill this week in a House Foreign Affairs hearing.
