Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that now, with the new sanctions law against Russia signing by the US President, the hope for improving relations with the US has come to an end, Interfax reports.
“The sanctions regime is codified and will be preserved for decades, unless something miraculous happens. Moreover, it will be tougher than the Jackson-Vanik law, for it is comprehensive and can not be postponed under special orders of the president without the consent of the Congress,” he wrote on Facebook.
Medvedev predicted that relations between the Russian Federation and the United States would be extremely tense, regardless of the congressional or presidential constitution.
“Long-standing settlements in international bodies and courts lie ahead. Further intensification of international tension. Refusal to solve major international problems,” he stated.
At the same time, the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation suggested that the United States seek to remove Trump from power.
“New steps are ahead, the ultimate goal of which is to remove him from power," he wrote.
Previously QHA reported that US President Donald Trump signed a law on new anti-Russian sanctions.
