SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Russia understands that it will remain under the pressure of economic sanctions, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a conference in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Thursday.

U.S. Republican and Democratic senators on Wednesday introduced a bill seeking to impose sanctions on its banking, energy and foreign debt to punish Russia for meddling in U.S. elections and for its aggression in Ukraine.
