While legislators have been very active in sponsoring more anti-Russia sanction bills, the White House has been warier in its approach, with President Trump drawing personal criticism for his softer stance on all Russia-related issues.

The Deputy Minister also said that from the beginning of 2017, the US government imposed sanctions against 217 Russian legal entities and individuals. The Trump administration has imposed new sanctions against two Russian shipping companies and six vessels for violating the UN Security Council resolutions.

So far this year, the Treasury Department charges that Russian vessels have transferred 3,500 tons of oil to North Korean entities accused of engaging in illicit economic activity for the leadership in Pyongyang. In the past decade alone, Russian Federation has mined more than 2,000 tons of gold, with annual production expected to rise by 400 tons by 2030.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told an audience in Washington it is essential for the U.S., Britain and the European Union to stand firm against Russian President Vladimir Putin's increasingly unsafe attacks on long-standing worldwide norms.

The United States on Tuesday sanctioned two Russian shipping companies and six Russian vessels for allegedly helping North Korea's illicit activities in violation of worldwide sanctions.

"We will not hesitate to do so if its conduct does not demonstrably and significantly change", Mandelker added.

"The Americans are weaponizing the USA dollar, and it's absolutely right for Russian Federation to want to diversify its foreign currency holdings", said John Meyer, a partner at SP Angel in London. Mr Hunt's appeal follows an announcement of a new tranche of U.S. sanctions triggered by a decades-old law on the use of chemical weapons rather than a political decision by the Trump administration.

Hours after the Microsoft report was released, the Kremlin said it did not understand allegations from the United States corporation and that they lacked evidence.
