According to sources, US Sanctions will increase over Russia on the issue of the chemical weapons.
US sanctions on Russia will be imposed further as the country is failed to meet conditions under the international chemical weapons law. However, it is happened due to the nerve agent attack in March in Britain on the former Russian spy.
The spokeswoman Heather Nauert revealed that the Department informed Congress that they can’t certify that Russia met conditions that were required by Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991.
They intend to proceed according to the terms of CBW Act, that orders the implementation of extra US sanctions.
Russia has been facing US sanction since 2014. However, the country has officially built up its own framework for monetary exchanges. It will help them to protect themselves from a potential restriction from SWIFT.
