The imbalance of Trump when taking measures is extrapolated to Moscow?

Por mayli2017

According to the newspaper Moskovski Komsomolets and leaving aside the propaganda aspect, the legislative initiative to contain the US administration is redundant. Bearing in mind that in Russia since 2007 a law is in force that allows the president to make decisions on any sanctions in response to any hostile measure of any State.

The spokesman of the Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, exhorted to respond to the shameless behavior of the USA after that country adopted measures that affect to 23 Russian officials and industrialists, among them the magnates with global vocation, Oleg Deripaska and Viktor Vekselberg. The aforementioned project also includes the preparation of lists of people who are banned in Russia, a faculty that corresponds to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In order to avoid and contain the sanctions of the US Administration towards branches of the Russian economy as well as physical and legal persons of this country, computer programs and technical equipment, alcohol and tobacco from the USA, as well as Space rocket engines may be banned or restricted by Russia under a bill.

According to the Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Rábkov, this project also affects the States that join the North American punitive initiatives and will be debated at first reading on May 15. The president has been one of the drivers for the approval of the law in a "dynamic" manner.

The document was presented to the chamber more than 15 days ago and initially endorsed by the signatures of the head of the Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, the deputy chief and the leaders of all the parliamentary groups. The document is already supported by 327 deputies, out of a total of 450 from the Duma.

According to many political commentators, if successful in its initial drafting, the law is tantamount to giving a shot in the foot to Russian interests, from industry to natural persons. In a total of 16 points, the document lists measures directed against the US and countries that join the US sanctions against Russia. The prohibition or restriction of agricultural imports, raw materials and manufactured products, the suspension or obstruction of collaboration with organizations in which the United States has more than 25% of the capital in the field of atomic energy, aeronautics industry and engine construction. Rockets are some of the regulations contained within the document.

Likewise, limitations and restrictions are foreseen for the acquisition of technological equipment and computer programs produced by the United States destined to the State and municipal Administration as well as to certain companies. It also prohibits advice on audit work and Russian privatization processes for companies with more than 25% US participation.

The document also poses limitations on the export of rare metals, as well as labor restrictions for highly qualified specialists, in addition to opposition to the importation of drugs according to a list prepared by the Government, provided that they are manufactured in Russia. And if that were not enough, the import into Russia of "any other merchandise" produced in the US or in other foreign states is inhibited.
