U.S. to impose sanctions on Russian Federation over attack on Skripals

The poisoning case gained further traction in June when a British couple with no apparent ties to Russian Federation died from an accidental encounter with a similar nerve agent in the nearby British town of Amesbury.

A senior U.S. State Department official said later new sanctions would not apply directly to Aeroflot, but could theoretically affect the company if it tried to import any of the goods covered by the sanctions.

In Moscow, the ruble shed as much as 5% against the dollar on Thursday and stocks plunged as much as 9%, led by state banks and national carrier PJSC Aeroflot-Russian Airlines, which risk losing access to US markets if the sanctions escalate.

"Sanctions are the US weapon of choice", Trenin wrote on Twitter.

In March, former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury, where they lived.

The sanctions stem from a March nerve-agent attack against a former Russian spy in the U.K. The U.S. and Britain have held Russia responsible for the attack. It is believed the poison was in a perfume bottle discarded by the attackers. One of them, Dawn Sturgess, died eight days later.

Under the terms of the sanctions, any attempt by a USA company to obtain an export licence to sell anything with a potential national security goal - gas turbine engines, electronics, integrated circuits and testing and calibration equipment - will be automatically denied.

A second set of potentially more serious measures will be introduced only if Moscow fails to provide reliable assurances it will no longer use chemical weapons and blocks on-site inspections.

The Russian government has criticized the United States for ordering new sanctions against Russia.

Vladimir Vasilyev, a senior researcher at the Institute of the USA and Canada in Moscow, said the Americans were strengthening sanctions "from an element of pressure into an ultimatum".

The White House said Trump provided "a letter of introduction" at Paul's request, and that the president "mentioned topics of interest that Senator Paul wanted to discuss with President Putin".

The International Monetary Fund Russia's financial stability report says, "The Russian economy is experiencing a protracted recession and faces significant risks". Peskov said in a conference call with reporters that it needs to see what specific action the USA takes before retaliating. The United Kingdom blamed Russia for the attack, resulting in the expulsion of 150 Russian diplomats from the U.K., U.S. and other allies.

Vladimir Putin's government violated an global act banning the use of chemical and biological weapons with the assassination attempt, the State Department said.

The novichok-type nerve agent was found on the front door of Skripal's home.

"The mandatory sanctions that follow this determination are key to increasing pressure on Russia", Royce said.

"Let us welcome the United Sanctions of America!"

While criticized as too keen to strike up a friendship with Putin, Trump maintains that he's been tough on Moscow.

While Kremlin spokesman Peskov suggested the Kremlin was still weighing how to respond to the sanctions, other Russian officials were less circumspect.

Zakharova said the United States was "knowingly presenting demands that are unacceptable to us" as conditions for the sanctions to be lifted.
