US President Barack Obama has promised to deepen economic sanctions against Russia by the end of the week, and it turns out he already quietly signed the bill that opens way for more restrictions without further legal hurdle, State Department said.
The bill was expected to be signed “by the end of the week” despite some concerns about its contents, according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest’s statement in Tuesday. However, the bill was actually signed without any further delay, as confirmed by US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki.
“He signed it yesterday,” she stated on Wednesday when asked about the bill dubbed Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014.
