Joe Biden Signs Fiscal 2022 Defense Budget

The budget is $ 768 billion. In early December, the draft defense budget was approved by the House of Representatives, and later by the Senate.

The document does not mention sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, provisions banning Americans from transactions related to Russia's sovereign debt and restrictions on 35 Russian officials and businessmen, including Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, head of the Central Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina, chairman of the board of Gazprom Alexei Miller and others. The relevant amendments were approved by the House of Representatives in September. Then the document began to be considered by the Senate, but it was not approved due to disagreements between Republicans and Democrats.
