US Sanctions on Russia to Stay in Place
US sanctions on Russia will remain in place and unchanged for now, President Donald Trump said Monday, even after the Republican leader’s Summit with Vladimir Putin 2 weeks ago in Helsinki.
“Sanctions on Russia will remain as is,” President Trump told reporters at the White House during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
His record on Russia under scrutiny, President Trump was questioned about the subject at a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
PM Conte 1st broached the subject and said lifting the sanctions would be “unthinkable.” President Trump scolded Germany for agreeing to use a Russian Nat Gas pipeline while, in his estimation, not paying enough for defense.
President Trump has withstood some criticism in recent weeks for his Summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in which he did not chastise Moscow for its 2016 US election interference.
