Putin says latest United States sanctions senseless

Putin says latest United States sanctions senseless

New British foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt on Tuesday will urge the United States and European countries to do more to call out Russia's "malign behavior" and keep Vladimir Putin in check, notably by implementing tough sanctions.

Made public in early August and put into effect on Wednesday, the latest U.S. sanctions are related to the Novichok poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Britain.

A Senate panel united in bipartisan frustration Tuesday as Trump administration officials rebuffed several of their questions about the impact and implementation of Russian financial sanctions. They are accused of acting for or on behalf of Divetechnoservices to help the company circumvent USA sanctions.

Kim also committed at the summit to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees from the US.

As if to back up Hunt's assertions, top administration officials told USA lawmakers Tuesday they are prepared to impose additional sanctions on Russian Federation if its behavior does not change.

The latest drop in the value of the Russian currency came amid talk that the US was readying further sanctions.




"This is a very smart move from Putin", Jim Rickards, author and editor of newsletter Strategic Intelligence, said in an interview.

"President Trump is the most active president on social media that there's ever been", the British foreign secretary said.

Trump has been widely attacked after his Helsinki meeting with Putin, due to his reconciliatory remarks that many saw as a sign of siding with Moscow against the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 US elections.

"Europe needs Nord Stream 2", Putin said Wednesday.

National flags of Russia and the USA fly at Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow, Russia April 11, 2017. "We are ready to compete with anyone, but we expect a fair competition in line with worldwide norms". "We hope that our American partners will eventually realize the uselessness of this kind of politics and we will start constructive cooperation".
