Now we have the date 29 of January [for which a report will be prepared with a list of Russians who may fall under the new sanctions], people are very actively working on this part of the law (CAATSA). Now it is too early to talk about it.- He said, responding to a question about the number of Russians who may fall for new US sanctions.
At the same time, Huntsman explained that the report’s developers are trying to take into account “how new sanctions will affect Russian-American relations not only in the short term, but also in the long term.”
Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that by the end of January, two anti-Russian reports of the presidential administration of the United States to Congress should appear as part of CAATSA. According to a high-ranking diplomat, this is “another attempt by [Washington] to influence the Russian internal situation, especially on the eve of the presidential election.”
