The chairman of the Russian State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee, Alexei Pushkov, believes that the U.S. Senate laid the foundation for a Cold War policy by adopting the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014.
"The U.S. Senate has given the president the right to impose any sanctions against Russia. Its goal is to provide a solid legal groundwork for a Cold War policy," Pushkov said on his Twitter account.
The Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014 allows the U.S. president to send military hardware to Kyiv and impose restrictions on major Russian corporations.
