Due to the additional sanctions put in place this week by the Trump Treasury Department, Russian officials are now considering retaliatory sanctions against the United States.
Though Russian President Vladimir Putin called such retaliation “premature” earlier this week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov recently opened up to the possibility for such action saying, “It goes without saying that the main principle of reacting to sanctions is reciprocity.”
The U.S. Treasury sanctions are against 38 individuals and organizations for their involvement in separatist movements in Ukraine. The Senate also passed a Russia sanctions bill June 15 that has been held up in the House for procedural reasons. The Senate bill penalizes Russia for its meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
These sanctions come at a time when Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is being investigated by Congress and may signal a harsher, more aggressive rebuke of Russia’s actions.
