New restrictions against Russia’s high-ranked officials and oligarchs will follow after the release of the ‘Kremlin report’. U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said that during his meeting with the Senate’s Banking Committee, as quoted by CNBC reporter Kayla Tausche.

As is known, the U.S. Treasury presented the 'Kremlin report' at the consideration by the U.S. Congress. The list contains 210 names, mostly the people from the close circle of Russian leader Vladimir Putin. These are top officials, leaders of state-run companies and 96 oligarchs. Among them are presidential secretary Dmitriy Peskov, presidential counselor Vladislav Surkov and many others. The U.S. Treasury added that there will be no automatic introduction of sanctions against these individuals, however, the risk increases.
