EU concerned over U.S. sanctions on Russia

The European Union
The European Union on Wednesday said it is concerned with the United States' proposed additional sanctions against Russia, citing a threat to energy independence.


The EU comment comes after the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to toughen sanctions on Russia, as well as Iran and North Korea. The bill is expected to pass the U.S. Senate, as the body previously approved a version of the legislation.

Though the United States took into account the EU's energy concerns, the U.S. House "nevertheless foresees the imposition of sanctions on any company (including European) which contributes to the development, maintenance, modernization or repair of energy export pipelines" by Russia, the European Commission said in a statement.

U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said it was Congress' job to hold the countries who worked with Russia accountable for undermining the United States and disrupting global stability.
