To predict what will be a new wave of U.S. sanctions is impossible, given the unpredictability of Americans in recent times, said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

«What will it be, now hardly anyone will venture to predict, especially given the unpredictability of our American counterparts,» — said Peskov in interview to TV channel «Rain».

«For the sake of order, I once again remind you that the sanctions – is still something that is consistent with international law. In this case, we do not recognize these limitations, these unilateral restrictions applied as a lawful sanction, we consider them to be illegal. Therefore, probably, more correct to use the word restraint, restriction, not sanctions. Second, we understand that this process is codified, i.e. it is not already in line with the decisions of an organ or of the President, and this is something that should be enforced by law, this so-called second wave of sanctions,» he said.

Earlier, the Chairman of the foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. house of representatives ed Royce said that the U.S. administration came to the conclusion that Moscow has not complied with put forward Washington’s conditions. U.S. had previously stated that in case of default of these conditions will introduce the second part of the sanctions against Russia, but after consulting the Department of state and U.S. Congress. The U.S. state Department spokesman Heather Nauert told RIA Novosti that the U.S. Department of state intends to act in accordance with the law which requires it to introduction against Russia of new sanctions because Russia has not fulfilled the requirements of Washington under the «business Skrypalia».
