The US administration said Russia did not comply with the American chemical weapons law, said the head of the international committee of the House of Representatives, Ed Royce.
Deputy State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said earlier that by November 6, the State Department must present to Congress the conclusion whether Russia is in compliance with the provisions of the American chemical weapons law. Moscow was demanded to give official assurances to the world community by November 6 that they had no plans to use chemical weapons and give international specialists access to inspect their chemical facilities.
Otherwise, the US threatened to introduce the second part of the sanctions, but after consulting the State Department and Congress.
“The administration announced that Russia did not comply with the requirements of the law,” – said in a statement, Royce, available to RIA Novosti.
“It should not surprise anyone that Vladimir Putin refuses to renounce the use of military nerve agents. It is unacceptable that the administration does not have a plan … for action on the second round of mandatory sanctions required by US law, ”the text says.
“In recent years, Russia has participated in daring poisoning … The administration (of the President of the United States, Donald) Trump needs to act quickly to confirm its own determination. Delay will only lead to greater Russian aggression, ”Royce said.
