Skripal case: US slaps new sanctions on Russia

"US President Donald Trump has imposed new sanctions against Russia over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK in March 2018.

US banks are now banned from providing loans to Russia, and Washington will also be opposing any loan extension to Moscow by international institutions.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with the Russian nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury, though they have now recovered.

Russia denies any role in the attack."


"The sanctions were imposed under America's Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act adopted in 1991.

The act mandates the imposition of new sanctions within 90 days if Russia fails to give reliable assurance that it will no longer use chemical weapons.

In recent months, the US Congress has been pressing President Trump to act again, saying that the 90-day deadline had long expired.

The sanctions came a day after Mr Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation.

Both the White House and the Kremlin said the two leaders discussed massive wildfires raging in Russia. They did not say whether the sanctions issue was also raised."

I'm left wondering why 'Trampu' took SO long to sign off on the new round - due nearly six months before ..
No to Brexit, Yes to a People's Vote on Brexit, THEN a General Election
