US President Donald Trump Administration has confirmed its position on sanctions against Russia related to annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea.

This was announced by White House Spokesman Sean Spicer in Washington on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I think that Ambassador Haley has addressed that very forcefully at the U.N., that until Russia leaves Crimea, that those sanctions are a non-starter," Spicer said, answering the question whether the US President supports the initiative of strengthening the monitoring of the Congress over anti-Russian sanctions, presented in the form of a new bill on Wednesday.

Spicer also reminded that there is another set of sanctions against Russia, associated with its aggression in eastern Ukraine.
