The White House is to impose new sanctions against the Kremlin; according to U.S. Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin said that at a briefing in Washington.
‘As we’ve spoken before, we’re working on it (new sanctions, - 112 International). We’ll make an announcement in the near future,’ he told the press.
Last August, the U.S. Congress almost unilaterally approved the law H.R. 3364, ‘Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions'. President Trump signed it, which implies the law can take force. The bill foresees further restrictions against Russia's state-run metallurgy and mining industry, as well as railway transport.
