"The (midterm US) elections have not happened yet, but there are already allegations".

"I think we're forcing the Russians and, specifically, [President Vladimir] Putin to reconsider his preferred strategy", he said, accusing Moscow of supporting both right and left radical elements in the United States in order to destabilize the country and jeopardize its democracy.

The announcement of the actions came as United States lawmakers urged tighter economic restrictions on Moscow and Britain's top diplomat accused Russia's leader of pursuing policies that are making the world more risky.

He and the State Department's top diplomat for Europe, Wess Mitchell, said Russian Federation is feeling the impact, costing its economy tens of billions of U.S. dollars, with companies under sanctions losing a quarter of their operating revenue and having to shed employees.

Meanwhile, Britain's foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, called on the European Union to ensure that its sanctions against Russia were comprehensive, in response to accusations Moscow poisoned a former Russian spy in Britain, using a nerve agent.

"Even as we have imposed unprecedented penalties for Russian aggression, we have been clear that the door to dialogue is open, should [Russian President Vladimir] Putin choose to take credible steps toward a constructive path".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Britain on Tuesday of trying to impose its hostile Russia policy on the European Union and the United States, Russian news agencies reported. The administration's actions come at the president's direction, he added, and he said he had a list of times Trump voiced support for the intelligence community's assessment of Russia's 2016 interference, just as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did during testimony last month.

"Of course we must engage with Moscow, but we must also be blunt", Hunt said in a speech in Washington.

At the same time, U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on assertions that Russian Federation sought to meddle in the U.S. election, taking to social media to dismiss an investigation into Russia's actions as a "rigged witch hunt". But earlier this month, the United States, citing the Salisbury incident, imposed sanctions that, starting on August 22, will bar Russian Federation from buying sensitive US technology goods. "We will not hesitate to do so if its conduct does not demonstrably and significantly change".

The sanctions seek to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear program.

"Microsoft is playing political games", it cited the source as saying.
