White House BLOCKING Decision – They’re Letting Putin Do It
(FeaturedNews.com) – Russia has a $10 billion contract to build nuclear infrastructures for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed the Biden administration would not step in to stop the Russia-Iran nuclear deal during recent testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Blinken assured the committee that Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia would remain in place.
Blinken couldn’t promise the move would preserve all sanctions. He only said the nuclear situation is separate from the Ukraine conflict, and therefore, the sanctions associated are different.

Russia is negotiating on behalf of the United States with Iran for a nuclear deal, which President Biden wants to revive after former President Donald Trump ended it. Because the nation is working with the White House, the administration lifted sanctions it put on Russia that would stop the $10 billion payout.
According to The Washington Free Beacon, Republicans in Congress feel uneasy about this arrangement. They say it’s going against the efforts to stop Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine. Cooperating on one front with the nation while also trying to condemn it is confusing, and they believe the United States should not be doing any business with the Kremlin. Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) told the publication the Biden administration is showing how desperate it is for an Iran deal.
