The U.S. Senate

The Senate could consider the issue until Aug.

To a vote in the U.S. Senate may return to the start of the holidays in August a bill on sanctions against Russia. This was stated by the Chairman of the foreign Affairs Committee of the us Senate, Bob Corker, according to Politico.

The opportunity to return to the bill came after the vote on repealing health care reform, former President Barack Obama (Obamacare) was postponed indefinitely, said Crocker.

The document is jammed in the lower house due to procedural issues, as well as criticism of the bill by the oil lobby and disagreements among Republicans. In June, it was passed by the Senate by 98 votes to 2.

Earlier, Secretary of state USA Rex Tillerson said that sanctions against Russia should be maintained as long as Moscow does not fulfill the Minsk agreements in full .
