The names and positions of persons in respect of whom restrictions may be imposed are not specified in the document.

Possible sanctions in the draft law include the freezing of assets and the refusal to issue visas.

The bill requires the American authorities to report to Congress on what they know about the finances of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his entourage.

In addition, he obliges the White House to report whether, in his opinion, Russia has violated US laws prohibiting the use of chemical and biological weapons.

In Germany, they said that the studies conducted revealed a substance from the Novichok group in Navalny. The Kremlin noted that no toxic substances were found in Navalny’s body before he was taken to Berlin.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in turn, stressed that Russia will not leave unanswered new Western sanctions if they are introduced.
