The speaker of the American Congress believes that the introduction of new sanctions is necessary because of the sentence to Alexei Navalny.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi said that in connection with the latest events in Russia, it is necessary to introduce new restrictive measures against this country. The politician expressed her opinion during a briefing on Thursday, February 4.
At the same time, Pelosi noted that the administration of President Joe Biden should take the first step in this direction.
We will remind, six American senators submitted to Congress a bill on the introduction of sanctions against Russia in connection with the verdict of opposition leader Alexei Navalny and the massive arrests of protesters against the decision of the Moscow court.
Earlier, the German government also allowed the introduction of additional restrictive measures against the Russian Federation because of the sentence to the Russian politician.
