Putin says latest US sanctions senseless

Trump has been widely attacked after his Helsinki meeting with Putin, due to his reconciliatory remarks that many saw as a sign of siding with Moscow against the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 USA elections.

Putin added that he hoped Washington would eventually realise "this policy has no future".

The United States also announced sanctions on Russian shipping over the transfer of refined petroleum products to North Korea in violation of U.N. restrictions.

London has blamed the March poisoning in southwestern England of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia - using a Soviet-made nerve agent - on Moscow, plunging the two countries into a diplomatic crisis.

USA lawmakers pushed for more aggressive steps to counteract the Russian "menace" on Tuesday, despite Trump administration officials insisting current sanctions were having an effect and vowing to impose more economic pain if Moscow does not change its behaviour.

An unidentified Rostec representative told the state-run RIA Novosti news agency that USA experts tested and recommended the Russian-made encryption equipment.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Riabkov told RIA Novosti the United States sanctions "have no influence on our policy", adding that they will be on the agenda Thursday in Geneva in talks between USA national security advisor John Bolton and his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev.

Aretha Franklin all-star tribute concert in the works
On Monday, reports surfaced that the iconic singer was battling cancer and that her death is imminent . Her last performance was on November 2, 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY .

The claims that Russian hackers targeted conservative think tanks critical of Trump and the Moscow government and the US Senate may also again expose the odd divide between the President and his own national security and intelligence establishment on the issue.

Tensions with Russian Federation remain high amid the investigation into its interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and whether it colluded with Trump or members of his campaign.

He will say: "Of course we must engage with Moscow, but we must also be blunt: Russia's foreign policy under President Putin has made the world a more unsafe place".

Peskov said Putin had met his Security Council on Wednesday to discuss problems in U.S. -Russia relations ahead of the meeting between Bolton and Patrushev.

Britain on Tuesday will call for the European Union to increase sanctions against Russian Federation, saying the bloc had to stand "shoulder to shoulder" with the United States, which hit Moscow with new economic curbs this month.

"Russia is the optimum supplier for the European economy", Putin said.
