Russian trade, human rights bill heads to Obama

Published: 12.07.12, 08:26 / Israel News

A Russian trade and human rights bill cleared Congress and headed for President Barack Obama's signature, opening new export opportunities for American businesses but antagonizing relations with Russia over its treatment of dissidents.


The Moscow government, while welcoming better trade relations, threatened retaliation Thursday over a section of the bill that would punish Russian officials who allegedly commit human rights violations. (AP)
