washington - The US House of Representatives voted on Tuesday with overwhelming majority for new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. The vote was 388 against 2. Many Republicans voted for, even though President Donald Trump had made objections.
The draft law now goes to the Senate. If it takes over the law, it is up to Trump to sign or veto it.
The law sets Russia new financial penalties for its interference in the US presidential and military role in Ukraine and Syria. The law also makes it impossible for Trump to alleviate sanctions without the permission of Congress.
