The Trump administration added to its growing list of sanctions against Russian Federation on Tuesday as US lawmakers urged tighter economic restrictions on Moscow and Britain's top diplomat accused Russia's leader of pursuing policies that are making the world more unsafe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday called USA sanctions against Moscow "counterproductive and senseless" after Washington warned that more "economic pain" was to come.

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

"That means calling out and responding to transgressions with one voice whenever and wherever they occur, from the streets of Salisbury to the fate of Crimea".

The Taliban plans to take part in Afghanistan peace talks in Moscow on September 4, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency on Tuesday.

In June, the United States sanctioned Divetechnoservices, also based in Saint Petersburg, for procuring underwater equipment and diving systems for Russian government agencies, including Russia's FSB intelligence agency. The Kremlin denies involvement.

Speaking at the United Nations last month, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged the worldwide community to strictly enforce the established measures.

It is understood that additional restrictions may then be imposed after three months unless Moscow provides assurances that it is not using chemical or biological weapons.




The sanctions sparked a sell-off across Russian markets, and pushed up the country's cost of borrowing - with both likely to worsen if the second wave of measure is enacted. The bloc hasn't expanded the sanctions it imposed in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

But, the European Union has not imposed sanctions related to Salisbury, although it strongly condemned Moscow and joined worldwide action to expel Russian officials.

"As for sanctions, these actions are counter-productive and pointless, especially towards a country like Russia", Putin told reporters in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Any new European Union sanctions would require unanimity among all 28 states.

In a speech at the US Institute of Peace, Mr Hunt is due to say that, under Mr Putin, Russia's "aggressive and malign behaviour undermines the global order that keeps us safe".

Hunt will also seek to carry a tough message to Europe on the subject of Brexit, warning that a no deal departure could threaten the continent's unity for a generation, according to his office.

Hunt, who is to meet on Wednesday with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, will ask London's allies to do more.
