US and Britain considering additional sanctions against Russia

Kremlin, Moscow (@ global-strategy)

According to Bloomberg, various options are being considered from restrictive measures against Russian businessmen to restrictions related to the country's sovereign debt.

As noted by Bloomberg, London intends to act through the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), urging it to put pressure on Moscow. The British authorities are also going to discuss the issue of possible sanctions against the Russian Federation with allies in Europe, including France and Germany, in the coming weeks.

The US plans to introduce a second, larger package of restrictions on Russia if it does not agree to certain conditions, agency sources said. We are talking about guarantees that Moscow will abandon the use of chemical weapons and allow inspections of facilities where it is supposed to be located.
