The signing by US President Donald trump of the law on the extension of sanctions against Russia — a new blow to Russian-American relations, the possibility of recovery in the foreseeable future, said the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

The US President Donald trump on Wednesday signed legislation significantly expands sanctions against Russia.

«Both houses of Congress passed a bill expanding sanctions against Russia and President Donald trump signed him today. We understand that this was the result of a monstrous Russophobic campaign in the United States, expanded under President Barack Obama. Russian dossier was the main theme for the opponents of trump, who is under heavy domestic political pressure,» said Slutsky reporters.

«The signing of the document was to be expected. Nevertheless, it is undoubtedly a new blow to Russian-American relations, the possibility of recovery in the foreseeable future», — he stressed.
