The new restrictions would target Banks, Russia’s LNG projects overseas, the country’s cyber sector and sovereign debt, according to the legislation, Senator Bob Menendez’s office said in a statement on Wednesday.
“The comprehensive legislation seeks to increase economic, political, and diplomatic pressure on the Russian Federation in response to Russia’s interference in democratic processes abroad, malign influence in Syria, and aggression against Ukraine, including in the Kerch Strait”, the statement said.
The bill would have to pass the US Congress and be signed by US President Donald Trump before becoming law, Reuters reported earlier on Wednesday.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said in an email to Reuters that the goal of the new restrictions “is to change the status quo and impose meaningful sanctions and measures” against Russia.
Washington imposed first sanctions against Russia in March 2014 in wake of the political crisis in Ukraine, justifying the US move as dissatisfaction with Moscow’s actions in Ukraine.
