President Donald Trump will delay a second summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin until next year, the White House announced Wednesday.
But leading congressional Republicans and US energy firms concerned about losing business with Russian Federation have been seeking to put on the brakes.
"It reduces the possibility an Indian arms purchase from Russian Federation will trigger CAATSA sanctions, a situation both the administration and most of Capitol Hill are keen to avoid", he said.
Unlike a year ago, when Congress worked with lightning speed on a sanctions law targeting Russia, North Korea and Iran, some lawmakers said on Tuesday the Senate and House of Representatives were carefully weighing their response to growing fears that Moscow is plotting to interfere in November's congressional elections.
"Just as Vladimir Putin has made clear his intention to challenge American power, influence, and security interests at home and overseas, the United States must make it abundantly clear that we will defend our nation and not waver in our rejection of his effort to erode western democracy as a strategic imperative for Russia's future", they added, referring to the Russian president.
Russian President Vladimir Putin may have secured an invitation from President Donald Trump to visit the United States, but he will not receive a similar offer from White House allies on Capitol Hill, according to Republican congressional leaders. Bolton suggested the decision not to meet sooner was due to special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US presidential election. His reasoning? "They definitely don't want Trump".
In May, the US Treasury Department prolonged sanctions already in place against a number of Russian companies until the end of October this year, Sputnik recalls.

They asked for more questioning, more documents and more money for states to secure their election infrastructure.
In the U.S., two influential the Republican Senator said about the need to promptly prepare new sanctions against Russian Federation.
Trump initially denied the Federal Bureau of Investigation findings at the press conference following the one-on-one meeting with Putin.
