On Tuesday the rouble rate had stood at 63.4. Yesterday the Russian embassy in Washington accused the United States of running a "sanctions assembly line" and Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said they were "illegal" and against global law. The UK and its allies have blamed Russian Federation for the attack. Mr Skripal and his daughter recovered after intensive care in hospital, and their current whereabouts are being kept secret.
Peskov highlighted on Thursday what he called the "unpredictability of Russia's partners across the Atlantic.you can expect anything from Washington", he toldCBS News partner network BBC News, calling the USA, "an unpredictable worldwide player".
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has held a telephone talk with his United States counterpart Michael Pompeo on Friday, pointing out that Moscow strictly rejected new U.S. sanctions, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The move was announced today by the USA state department. The Russian embassy said Moscow continued to advocate for an open and transparent investigation into the poisoning.
The new sanctions will not fully take effect until later in August, but already the Russian rubletumbled to two-year lows and nervous investors began selling off Russian assets. These include a potential moratorium on national carrier flights to the United States and an nearly complete import ban.
In turn, U.S. State Department officials insisted the new sanctions were triggered automatically by longstanding U.S. policy regarding the use of chemical weapons by state actors.
"The US has been angering a lot of countries around the world over trade and that should make it easier for Moscow to find allies on the economic front".
President Trump had already moved to expell a hundred Russian diplomats from the United States following the attack. He added that the new sanctions amount to "inflicting a punishment in the absence of a crime in the tradition of lynch law". Those sanctions restrict travel and financial transactions.
Speaking after the State Department announcement, Royce said the administration was "rightly acting to uphold worldwide bans on the use of chemical weapons".
Washington had become an unpredictable player on the global stage, Peskov added, saying "anything could be expected" from it and that it was important that Russia's financial system, which he described as stable, was prepared.
So far President Donald Trump has been silent on this latest move - which could well derail his attempts to develop a new, warmer relationship with Vladimir Putin.
What was the nerve agent? Russia denies any involvement in the Skripal attack, but the use of Novichok on a former mole for the British sent a loud and unnuanced message of its own to other Russians who work with foreign intelligence.
Perhaps it's finally dawning on our Russian "friends" that we're not playing around any more.
Three months later, Dawn Sturgess and her partner Charlie Rowley fell ill after they came into contact with the substance, which was found in a sealed perfume bottle.
After tests, scientists at the UK's military research lab, Porton Down, found the couple had also been exposed to Novichok.
