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.
