According to Yeliseyev, in the us Congress and the Senate who make the decision on sanctions, the elected supporters of Ukraine.

In the presidential Administration of Ukraine hopes that the US extended sanctions against Russia under the presidency of Donald trump.

This was stated by Deputy head of the presidential administration Konstantin Eliseev, the TV channel “Ukraine”.

“To make such a radical decision (about the possibility of lifting sanctions against Russia – approx.ed.) this decision is not the President but the decision of the Parliament, the Congress and the Senate. Even the results of today’s elections in Congress and the Senate chosen all the supporters of Ukraine from both Republicans and from Democrats. We therefore hope that these solutions will not take place that the sanctions will be extended,” he said.

Also, according to Yeliseyev, Ambassador of the USA in Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch assured him that the policy of sanctions against Russia remains unchanged.

“I would like to note that the United States build its policy based on the principles of respect for territorial integrity, sovereignty, based on the support of freedom, independence and democracy”, – said the Deputy head of AP.

We remind that on 15 September the Council of the European Union extended the action of personal sanctions against representatives of the Russian Federation. In particular, up to 15 March 2017 under sanctions are 146 people and 37 Russian companies, which in the EU is considered directly guilty of violating Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence.

Sanctions began its operation in March 2014. Now against Russia, in response to the crisis in Ukraine, there are a number of sanctions. In particular, economic sanctions aimed at specific sectors of the Russian economy, and measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol.

Also, the European Union added to the sanctions list of deputies of the state Duma of the Russian Federation elected in the occupied Crimea. Of the relevant decision of the EU Council reported in the EU Official journal, which published the text of the decision. Given the organization of the Russian Federation elections to the state Duma in the illegally annexed Crimea and Sevastopol the Council believes that six men should be added to the list of persons and companies subject to restrictive measures.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the resolution on the appeal to the parliaments of foreign States, parliamentary assemblies and international organizations regarding the elections in the state Duma of the Russian Federation on the territory of temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

Elections to the state Duma took place on 18 September. The results of the elections to the Duma were those same four parties that were previously. Pro-presidential party “United Russia” scored 37.7 percent, followed by “Communist” Gennady Zyuganov – of 13.93 and “LDPR” Vladimir Zhirinovsky – 13,11, overcomes the 5% threshold “Fair Russia” Sergei Mironov – of 6.55%.

On 20 September, during a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada MPs supported the decision on non-recognition of the legitimacy of the elections in the state Duma of Russia.
