WASHINGTON (QHA) -

Representatives of the Democratic Party in the US Senate prepared a draft resolution with a demand to impose sanctions against those  included in the Kremlin list.

The resolution was prepared by Senators Ben Cardin, Sherrod Brown and Robert Menendez in response to the refusal of the US Presidential Administration Donald Trump to impose new sanctions against Russia.

The text of the resolution says that Russia violates the democratic processes in Ukraine, and also seeks to interfere in the domestic policy of the United States and European countries. The Senators demand to expand sanctions against the Russian Federation taking into account the information provided in the Kremlin report.

Reportedly, because of the Kremlin list published by the US, the Russian businessmen lost $ 1 billion.

Previously, the US Treasury published the Kremlin list envisaged by the new law on sanctions, it included such Russian businessmen as Oleg Deripaska, Roman Abramovich, Vladimir Potanin, Mikhail Fridman. The shareholders of Alfa-Bank and Ukrsotsbank entered the list as well.
