Russia Says US Sanctions are Intended to 'Demonize' the Country

  • Salisbury Spy Poisoning: US Says Russia Was Behind Nerve Agent Attack In UK, And Will Impose Sanctions

Moscow has been trying with mixed success to improve battered U.S. -Russia ties since Donald Trump won the White House in 2016, and Russia's political elite was quick to chalk up a summit last month between Trump and Vladimir Putin as a victory.

Months after Britain alleged that the Russian government carried out nerve-agent attacks in Salisbury, the Trump Administration has announced a new round of sanctions against Russia, aimed to punish them for the incident.

Russia is already under USA sanctions for its 2014 invasion of Crimea, and the Trump administration expelled 60 Russians from the US and shuttered the Russian consulate in Seattle in response to the failed assassination attempt. Russian Federation has repeatedly refuted allegations concerning its involvement in the case. This is out of the question.

The law requires the president to terminate arms sales, deny usa credit and prohibit the export of sensitive technology to any country using chemical or biological weapons.

A fresh round of economic sanctions are to come into force on August 22 as punishment for Russia's violation of global law, the department said. They aim to deny Russian state-owned and state-funded enterprises access to any national-security-sensitive goods and technologies originating in the U.S.

"This whole accusatory pyramid is being built in the absence of any legal substantiation, but they're still telling us about worldwide law and respect for legal obligations", Zakharova told the Moscow briefing.

NBC, citing U.S. officials, said the second round of sanctions could include downgrading diplomatic relations, suspending the state airline Aeroflot's ability to fly to the United States and cutting off almost all exports and imports.

In a statement issued by its embassy in Washington, Russia called charges that Moscow employed chemical weapons "far fetched" - arguing the US lacked evidence, and repeating demands for a new investigation into the poisoning.

Israel kills two Hamas gunmen in Gaza, sides dispute circumstances
A relative of a Palestinian Hamas who was killed in Israeli tank shelling, reacts at a hospital in the northern Gaza Strip. Israel says Hamas, which rules Gaza, is using the protests as cover to carry out cross-border attacks.

The current situation in Washington appears to represent a "sanctions war", Clark said, as there are clearly "competing elements of the USA state".

"Following a 15-day Congressional notification period, these sanctions will take effect upon publication of a notice in the Federal Register, expected on or around August 22, 2018", she said.

The Kremlin, meanwhile, repeated its previous denial of any involvement in the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in southern England this year, while playing down the importance of the sanctions.

Skripal was a double agent, working for years with Russian intelligence while secretly passing information to British authorities. Skripal settled in Britain after a 2010 prisoner exchange.

Two other British citizens fell ill due to Novichok exposure in late June in a town close to Salisbury.

Sturgess, 44, died a week after the exposure. It is believed the poison was in a perfume bottle discarded by the attackers.

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson added that it is "overwhelmingly likely" that the attack was directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
