US senators introduce bill to sanction Russian debt, politicians

WASHINGTON, Aug 2 (PRIME) -- A group of U.S. senators has introduced a draft law on new anti-Russian sanctions, including sanctions against sovereign debt and politicians as well as caps for energy investment and restriction of uranium imports, according to a statement made by the senators on Thursday.

УThe current sanctions regime has failed to deter Russia from meddling in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections,Ф Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said.

УOur goal is to change the status quo and impose crushing sanctions and other measures against PutinТs Russia until he ceases and desists meddling in the U.S. electoral process, halts cyberattacks on U.S. infrastructure, removes Russia from Ukraine, and ceases efforts to create chaos in Syria.Ф

The ruble dipped by about 20 kopecks on the news to 62.53 rubles per dollar and 73.78 per euro by 17.27 Moscow time.
