Members of the US Congress, despite the partisan disagreements, are united on the need to constrain Russia and are preparing dozens of draft bills on new restrictions against Russia, Sergey Koshelev, the deputy head of the North American Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"There is no demand in the US legislative community to improve relations with Russia. Despite colossal domestic political problems and the dividing line that exists today between the Republicans and the Democrats, Russophobia is perhaps the only topic on which there is a consensus in the Capitol," Koshelev said at the roundtable dedicated to the crisis in the Russian-US relations.

"Dozens of draft bills on additional restrictions against Russia are being currently prepared by the US legislative community," he added.
