Kim Hyo-sun tells us more.

Rostec claims its Avtomatika unit, which specializes in encryption and secure communications, supplies the White House with technology that allows Trump and Putin to communicate privately. They are accused of acting for or on behalf of Divetechnoservices to help the company circumvent U.S. sanctions.

Diplomats said eight entries had been proposed, but two were dropped after opposition from Germany and Italy, who feared damage to their business dealings with Russian Federation.

Despite the sanctions, Putin said a summit with Trump in Helsinki last month had been useful and praised the benefits of direct dialogue.

"Consequences for violating these sanctions will remain in place" until the final and fully verified denuclearization of North Korea is achieved, said Mnuchin.

Earlier US sanctions punishing the Kremlin for its role in the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain took effect Wednesday.

"We oppose the stubborn, blinkered and aggressive approach of the Americans to solve bilateral and global problems with a calm, methodical work on a constructive agenda", he said.

A Senate panel united in bipartisan frustration Tuesday as Trump administration officials rebuffed several of their questions about the impact and implementation of Russian financial sanctions. More will automatically come into place soon unless Russian Federation complies with United States requests, which is unlikely to happen.

Trump and Putin met in Helsinki in July, their first bilateral meeting, after which the USA president was highly criticised at home for being very conciliatory with his Russian counterpart.

Putin also said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was refusing to discuss rules for military flights with Russian Federation.

The prospect of another summit between the two leaders has been postponed until next year due to the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and suspicions of collusion between Trump's team and the Kremlin.

"Europe needs Nord Stream 2", Mr Putin said.

He added that U.S. Russian Federation policy is based on the recognition that "to be effective, U.S. diplomacy must be backed by military power that is second to none and fully integrated with our allies and all of our instruments of power".
