The decision of the American senators to impose new sanctions against some Russian colleagues prevent the inter-parliamentary dialogue between the two countries, although this decision was expected, said RIA Novosti on Thursday, Deputy head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Andrey Klimov.

Previously, the Daily Beast reported that members of the U.S. Senate Committee on foreign relations voted against the proposal of Senator Rand Paul about the lifting of sanctions against the Russian Parliament.

«It wasn’t a surprise, but such a decision harms the inter-parliamentary dialogue between our countries,» — said Klimov.

He also noted that Russian parliamentarians are not asked to remove their sanctions. «We just explain (the American colleagues) that if you act in a civilized manner, we will act in response,» — concluded the Senator.
