United Kingdom to Call for More Sanctions on Russian Federation

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it welcomed statements by U.S. President Donald Trump indicating a desire to cooperate with Russian Federation, but that it would welcome concrete steps to improve relations more. In Washington, he has said that the European Union should stand "shoulder to shoulder" with the United States on a joint approach.

"I think the institutions of government are responding quite well to the Russian threat, not withstanding all this freakish signaling and weird behavior from the president", he said. But no, I'm not considering it at all. No.

"That means calling out and responding to transgressions with one voice whenever and wherever they occur, from the streets of Salisbury to the fate of Crimea", Mr. Hunt was due to say, referring to the southern English city of Salisbury, where a nerve-agent attack targeted a former Russian spy and his daughter. But I wouldn't consider it without that.

Peskov said the Kremlin would like to hear more details from the United States on any proposed cooperation in Syria and Ukraine, and that Kiev should also take positive steps. You have many other things.

Commenting on a recent interview in which the president once again suggested there was a debate over whether Russian Federation interfered in the election, Whitehouse said Trump's comments were completely at odds with the actions of his own administration, which has added sanctions against the country over its interference.
