Summary/Abstract: The U.S. Congress has extended sanctions on Russia, accused of interfering with the American elections in 2016. In doing so, Congress also sought to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to abolish them. The Russian Foreign Ministry later ordered 755 American diplomats to leave the territory of the Russian Federation. This unintended effect of the new sanctions sets the stage for a new round of disputes between the U.S. and some European countries, including views of the planned Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipeline project.
