Russian PM Medvedev on New Sanctions: 'US Declares Full-Fledged Trade War'
Medvedev predicted that the sanctions will be in force for decades to come, causing tensions between Moscow and Washington.
The prime minister stressed that Trump has been completely overplayed by the US establishment, predicting that the US president will be ousted.
President Donald Trump has signed a bill to slap new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea on Wednesday morning. He signed the bill on Wednesday morning, without holding an official signing ceremony as he has done with other major pieces of legislation, according to media reports.
For instance, Trump would now need Congress' permission to reverse measures imposed by his predecessor Barack Obama. He would also need lawmakers' approval to return Russian diplomatic properties that were seized under the previous administration.
