Vladimir Putin: Russia may 'have to retaliate' against U.S. sanctions

29 Juillet 2017

Russia believes that the most important thing in Syria is stopping bloodshed and ensuring conditions for political resolution, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. "It's impossible to endlessly tolerate this boorishness towards our country", Putin said a joint news conference with the president of Finland, according to Reuters".

Putin, who has repeatedly denied us allegations that Russian Federation interfered with last year's USA presidential election, said Moscow would only decide on how to retaliate against Washington once it had seen the final text of the proposed law.

"When will our response follow?"

It has, however, clarified that this replica was not clear and would depend on the final version of the project approved on Tuesday by the lower house of Congress, but which must be approved by the u.s. Senate and promulgated by Donald Trump.

Putin also contended that former President Barack Obama's ordered seizure of Russian diplomatic property in the United States and expulsion of diplomats in response to the election meddling charges "goes beyond all reasonable bounds".

The Senate backed the bill , which also imposes sanctions on Iran and North Korea, by a margin of 98-2 with strong support from Trump's fellow Republicans as well as Democrats.

"I don't even consider this to be an inquiry, because an inquiry presupposes that one tries to establish the circumstances as a whole, to study the reasons for, and to hear the parties (to the case, editor's note)", said Vladimir Putin.

The Russian strongman slammed the intensifying probe into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election, saying it bore witness to "a rise in anti-Russian hysteria" in Washington.

The sanctions, which House lawmakers approved overwhelmingly this week, "are also absolutely unlawful from the point of view of worldwide law", he added, according to the news outlet.

"It's very sad that U.S. -Russian relations are being sacrificed to resolve internal policy issues in the U.S", he reportedly said.

The two countries acting in agreement "could solve very acute problems much more effectively", Putin said, specifying the "fight with terrorism".
