The timing of the imposition of US sanctions against Russia and Iran in connection with allegations of American intelligence about the “interference” of these countries in the election of the American president in 2020 has been disclosed. This was reported by the CNN TV channel.

Washington accuses Moscow of trying to support Donald Trump’s re-election, discredit Joe Biden and “sow discord” in American society.
