The White House says Trump supports sanctions on the three countries in question and will review the legislation. Trump had privately expressed frustration that Congress was demanding the ability to limit or override the power of the White House on national security matters.
The White House initially wavered on whether the president would sign the measure into law.
Putin, who has repeatedly denied US allegations that Russian Federation interfered with last year's USA presidential election, said Moscow would only decide on how to retaliate against Washington once it had seen the final text of the proposed law.
The text is also directed at Iran and North Korea, aims to punish Moscow for its putative interference in the american presidential election a year ago, in respect of which an investigation is underway in the United States.
Putin said a lot of Russian diplomats had been expelled "without any particular reason" - a reference to sanctions imposed by President Barack Obama in December for Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 USA election - and said there had also been problems in business "which had no foundation at all". The bill also punishes Iran and North Korea for their weapons programs.

They've argued it would infringe on the president's executive authority and tie his hands as he explores avenues of communication and cooperation between the two former Cold War foes.
The bill threatens to further derail U.S. In his meeting this month with Putin on the sidelines of the Group of 20 leading rich and developing nations summit in Germany, Trump said he repeatedly addressed the topic of Russia's meddling in the US election. U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Maria Olson could not immediately say what kind of cut would have to be made to meet Russia's new requirements.
A spokesman for the European Commission said Friday that European officials will be watching the USA effort closely, vowing to "remain vigilant".
