  • Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday ordered a reduction in the number of U.S. diplomats in Russia and said it was closing down a U.S. recreation retreat in response

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.

Russia's Foreign Ministry demanded Friday that the United States cut the number of diplomatic staff it has in Russian Federation and said it would seize two US diplomatic properties, in a sharp response to a new sanctions bill passed by the US Congress a day earlier.

The proposed measures target Russia's energy sector as part of legislation that prevents Trump from easing sanctions on Moscow without congressional approval.

If he opts for a veto, the bill can become law anyway if two-thirds of both the House and Senate vote for an override.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump will sign a package of stiff financial sanctions against Russian Federation that passed Congress with overwhelming support, the White House said Friday.

"To waive sanctions on Russia, Trump would have to send Congress a report explaining and justifying his decision, and lawmakers would then get 30 days to decide whether to allow it".

Two eyewitnesses to the attack said the man shouted "Allahu Akbar" but police said they were unable to confirm the reports . The miscreant soon after the attack reportedly escaped but was later nabbed by the police.

The bill, which includes a provision that allows Congress to stop any effort by Mr Trump to ease existing sanctions on Russian Federation, will now be sent to the White House for the President to sign into law or veto. "Aurora is not meant to form blocks as well", Niinisto said. They fear the new sanctions could hinder key energy projects in Europe and further inflame internal European Union divisions.

Lawmakers have been keen to implement a sturdy clampdown on North Korea's confrontational actions - most recently after its first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"The message coming from Congress on a bipartisan basis is these are hostile regimes and sanctions are warranted - sanctions are called for", Ryan told reporters Thursday. 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".
