20 years of U.S. trade with Russian Federation

U.S. President Donald Trump will reportedly sign the legislation into law.

This bill also would set into law penalties President Barack Obama's administration imposed against Russian Federation in December for meddling in the USA election previous year and for its aggression in Ukraine.

President Vladimir Putin said 755 USA diplomats must leave Russian Federation and warned ties with Washington could be gridlocked for a long time, in a move Sunday that followed tough new American sanctions.

The US sanctions bill also included measures against Iran and North Korea and was passed over Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and its alleged interference in the 2016 US election.

Russian state media quoted Putin saying 755 out of "a thousand or so" employees will "have to stop their activities in the Russian Federation". House and Senate committees and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are examining possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. The strong bipartisan support for the bill was a sharp contrast to the bitter partisan rancor during debate over how to overhaul the USA healthcare system.

"Not only are the Democrats to a man and woman against any form of improving ties because they are angry about Russia's election interference, but a lot of Republicans are concerned as well", Stent said. Trump has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian officials.

"We waited for quite some time that maybe something will change for the better, had such hope that the situation will somehow change, but, judging by everything, if it changes, it will not be soon", Putin said about Russia's strained relations with the United States in an interview on the Rossiya 1 network, as quoted by the Times. And in that case, Stent said, Putin will come under pressure to act from his political right, hardline nationalists who see the U.S. as Moscow's greatest threat.

But the Kremlin's hopes for better relations under Trump haven't materialized as the probes of alleged Russian meddling in the US vote have widened in recent months.

The proposed measures target Russia's energy sector as part of legislation that prevents Trump from easing sanctions on Moscow without congressional approval.

After the financial crisis, gaining momentum in 2008, imports took a dent but recovered until peaking in 2011, when they started falling rapidly - well before the first sanctions were imposed. The sanctions also apply to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps security force.

Trump objects to the sanctions, but the bill has enough support in both houses to override a presidential veto.

Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn had to resign after his conversations with former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak came to light, some of which are thought to have been about easing sanctions.

Earlier on Thursday, Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters: "I would guess that he (Trump) will sign it". "We will. retaliate", he said. Trump's communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, had suggested Thursday that Trump might veto the bill and "negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians". Trump can impose new sanctions at any time through an executive order.

"We have a very rich toolbox at our disposal. This bipartisan bill is about keeping America safe, and I urge the president to sign it into law".
