The Chairman of the international Affairs Committee in the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev said that the limited new sanctions, the cooperation of Russian and US weapons are already largely phased out, noting that the form in which these sanctions are implemented, «monstrous.»

The US administration announced on 8 August new sanctions against Russia over its alleged use of chemical weapons in Salisbury, where in March, according to British authorities, was poisoned, former GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Julia. It is expected that 22 Aug will enter into force on the first package of sanctions of the United States. It is, above all, about the imposition of restrictions on exports to Russia dual-use products.

«It is no accident that the form itself that implements those sanctions is simply monstrous from the point of view of basic principles of law. If the first stage provides for the termination of arms supplies and financing of arms purchases, denial of U.S. government loans and prohibitions on the export of goods and technologies, «sensitive from the point of view of national security» the US, everything is already largely minimized (and where the benefit to the United States, particularly in the American – Russian cooperation in space – the goods may withdraw from the list)», — he wrote on the social network Facebook.

Kosachev added that the second phase of sanctions, which may come in November, going on: starting from blocking any help to the Russian Federation from international financial organizations such as IMF, and ending with the reduction or suspension of diplomatic relations and even a complete ban on flights to USA aircraft Russian Rosaviakosmos.
