The statement follows January release of the US so-called "Kremlin report," which included 114 Russian politicians, with the Russian presidential administration and members of the government, and 96 business people, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

The United States Secretary of the Treasury revealed that sanctions against the people mentioned in the so-called 'Kremlin list' would be introduced in the nearest future.

 

"We are actively working on those sanctions. And you should expect them in… [the] near future," US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told the US Senate Finance Committee.

 

Responding to the statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin described the sanctions as a deadlock solution, which is likely to lead to losses for those who introduced them.
