US Treasury Department announces imposing of new anti-Russian sanctions

Treasury also sent a classified annex to the list to Congress but announced no new sanctions at the time.

"I will say, personally, I think the gun violence - it's a tragedy what we've seen yesterday, and I urge Congress to look at these issues", Mnuchin said at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing, The Washington Post reported.

Steven Mnuchin added that the administration works out all necessary steps to impose the sanctions provided by the bill "On Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions" adopted in August 2017.

The statement follows January release of the USA 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.

Mnuchin on January 30 said that new sanctions were being prepared and that the department would issue them "in the next several months, maybe a month".

In the list - 96 Russian oligarchs, whose fortune is estimated to be worth over a trillion U.S. dollars. At the conclusion of the list the Ministry of Finance used data from the American magazine Forbes, which annually makes the list of the richest people in the world.

The US Treasury Department claimed this is not a sanction list as no restrictions or bans apply to the listed persons in the United States.
