European Union warns the United States against unilateral tightening of Russian Federation sanctions

Another, that the Nord Stream II pipeline ensures European gas supplies from Russian Federation, and thus USA sanctions that threaten the pipeline's completion indirectly threaten Europe's imports. The draft U.S. measures would prohibit American businesses from being involved in energy projects that include Russian companies, including ventures outside Russia. The US Political News reported that the deadlock has already been resolved with this initiative.

"We consider the continuation of rhetoric of sanctions counter-productive, harming the interests of our two countries, as well as potentially damaging interests of third countries, with which Russian Federation continues and develops trade-economic relations despite all negative tendencies", Peskov said.

The EU comment comes after the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to toughen sanctions on Russian Federation, as well as Iran and North Korea.

On Monday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "we heard of some corrections to the administration's stance on sanctions and will wait patiently until it is clearly articulated".

The bill, drawn up largely in response to Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 USA election, calls for new measures against Russia, North Korea and Iran. The Senate will have to vote on the House version. President Trump has little choice, his aides acknowledge, but to sign legislation for toughened US sanctions against Russian Federation that he wanted to see defeated.

U.S. sanctions against Russian Federation could impact the development of a trans-European gas pipeline.

It said the European Union might pass a law to limit USA jurisdiction on the issue or take retaliatory measures against U.S. firms. It warned that despite modifications to the bill in the House, the bill still "foresees the imposition of sanctions on any company (including European) which contributes to the development, maintenance, modernisation or fix of energy export pipelines by the Russian Federation".

He added the commission "concluded today that if our concerns are not taken into account sufficiently, we stand ready to act appropriately within a matter of days".

The note, dated July 19, said, "The measures risk breaking the transatlantic and G7 unity" on handling Russia's occupation of Crimea, Ukraine. Brussels says the sanctions could impact natural gas production off the coast of Egypt, gas pipelines in Ukraine, and gas projects in the Caspian.

The bloc says it will also prepare to use an European Union regulation allowing it to defend companies against the application of extraterritorial measures by the United States. There are deep concerns that the measures could hit European energy companies involved in Russia-related projects, including those engaged in the Nord Stream 2 initiative to build additional undersea natural gas pipelines between Russian Federation and Germany.

A Commission memo leaked to press this week said there was a "serious risks of detrimental political spillovers" if the United States went ahead.
