    Kremlin Warns US-Obnoxious Sanction On Russia.

    President Vladimir Putin – a former officer of the Soviet Union’s KGB and then director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) – regards the security service personnel as among his closest allies and most useful instruments. Here, he is seated between Director of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service Mikhail Fradkov (left) and Federal Security Service Director Alexander Bortnikov (right), celebrating the Day of Security Service staff in Moscow.
    The Russian government on Friday 28 Oct 2017 through one of its media Tass seriously pointing a finger to United States of displaying “hostility” as the Trump administration belatedly took the first steps toward imposing another new sanctions against Moscow for apparently interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
    In early August, after considerable delay and with minimal fanfare, President Trump signed into law a measure that required the new sanctions, which target individuals and firms with ties to Russian defense and intelligence agencies. Under the new law, Russian companies such as media that operate within United States could be subject to U.S. sanctions. On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson authorized US officials to release the compiled list to key members in the Congress.

    In a recent interview with CNN, Tillerson said that State and Treasury department officials were working on detailed guidance for how the new sanctions would work. “We are being very careful,” he said, “because there are business entities that need guidance; there are important allies and partners in NATO, other parts of the world, who need specific guidance so that they do not run afoul of the sanctions act.” “We have every intention of implementing Congress’ intent,” he added.
    On Friday, Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, told reporters on a conference call that the new sanctions had “echoes hostility toward Russia”  “These are echoes of unfriendly signs, to be precise, even more hostility against our country,” Peskov said.
    The diplomatic exchange of enmity it provides further evidence of continuous deterioration in the relations between Russia and the United States. Despite initial celebrations in Russian political circles after Trump’s election, the Kremlin has been disappointed by the lack of improvement in Moscow-Washington relations. Peskov pointed the finger at Washington for not doing its part, saying that while Russia was ready for better ties, Washington seemed “not so steady.” 
    Igor Pshenichnikov, an expert at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, told the Russian news agency TASS that the inclusion of so many defense industry companies indicated that the U.S. was “making every possible effort to take over the global arms market.” “It is an example of unfair and obnoxious competition," Pshenichnikov said.
    According to the Russian expert, the US "has been making every possible effort to take over the global arms market." "It is an example of unfair and obnoxious competition," Pshenichnikov stressed. "The new sanctions are aimed at leading our relations to an impasse that will be impossible to break, while bilateral relations have already plunged to the lowest level since World War II," he said. "It is in the interests of neither Russia nor the United States.
