USA heaps more sanctions on top of Russian Federation

Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt attends a joint news conference with Finland's Foreign Minister Timo Soini in Vantaa Finland

In its third round of sanctions against Russian entities this month due to under-the-table deals with North Korea that violated global sanctions, the U.S. Treasury Department targeted the two firms and six vessels for their involvement "in the ship-to-ship transfer of refined petroleum products with North Korea-flagged vessels", which the department said was "prohibited by the UN Security Council".

The US Treasury Department has announced sanctions on several individuals and entities over their involvement with Russian Federation and North Korea.

The U.S. State Department said earlier this month that the country will impose new sanctions on Russian Federation in two phases, and the first batch will take effect around August 22.

The Treasury Department said that earlier this year, one vessel linked to the Russian companies transferred 3,500 tons of oil to ships flying the North Korea flag.

Meanwhile, Britain's new foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, is set to push the United States into slapping tougher sanctions on Russian Federation, in response to Moscow's "malign" behavior around the world.

Russian Federation and the United States have been waging sanctions against each other as bilateral relations continue to worsen over recent years.

Speaking after talks with Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto in Sochi, Putin described last month's Helsinki summit with U.S. President Donald Trump as positive, but blamed Trump's administration for continuing to hit Russian Federation with sanctions.

In June, the United States sanctioned Divetechnoservices, also based in Saint Petersburg, for procuring underwater equipment and diving systems for Russian government agencies, including Russia's FSB intelligence agency.

Trump and Putin met in Helsinki in July, their first bilateral meeting, after which the U.S. president was highly criticised at home for being very conciliatory with his Russian counterpart.

"The established rules of global conduct are repeatedly being flouted by major countries like Russia", Hunt was to say in Washington, in his first major policy speech since succeeding Boris Johnson in July.

"After one year of the United States strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia the Taliban could still move freely to Pakistan and treated their injured friends in the hospitals of neighbouring country", Nicholson told reporter in Washington from Kabul through a video conference. Russian Federation has also continued reducing its holdings of USA treasuries. Who knows? We're going to see", he said, adding about Kim, "I like him. "Such information (proof) is lacking", he added.
