The second package of American sanctions against Russia on the Skripals case will take effect next week. TASS writes about this with reference to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs report.
It is noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has distributed this information in the electronic database of the US federal register. According to the document, restrictive measures take effect on Monday 26 August.
The White House and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced this package of sanctions in early August due to the fact that, following the introduction of the first package of sanctions in force since August 2018, Russia has reportedly failed to provide the guarantees required by US law . The Russian embassy later commented on a similar measure.
Former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were poisoned in Salisbury on March 4, 2018. London blamed Moscow for the incident, the Russian side denies all charges.
