Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have approved a new round of sanctions against Russia. Moscow warned it will "react" if President Obama signs the bill.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | December 13, 2014
The U.S. could be headed into another tit-for-tat sanctions game with Russia. The Kremlin is now threatening to “react” if Washington imposes more sanctions.
