US State Secretary Mike Pompeo also expanded that blacklist on Thursday, adding the names of 33 of Russia's most high-profile citizens, bringing the total roster to 72 people.

It targets no third country and violates with no global law, he added. Moscow denies any effort to meddle in USA politics.

Russian Federation will take "measures that best correspond to [its] interests", Peskov added.

China has made a harsh representation to the US States over the sanctions against it.

"We will do everything to stop being dependent on the countries who behave towards their partners in this way", Lavrov said on a visit to Sarajevo. He did not give specifics. They include private paramilitary contractor PMC Wagner, and Russian Defense Ministry procurement group Oboronlogistika, and KNAAP, Russia's largest aircraft manufacturer. "Playing with fire is silly, it can become unsafe".

Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow will do what is in her inters and new USA sanctions against Russian Federation - an attempt to displace from the market of the main competitor.

"We are fortunate to have had one of the best strikers in the world at our Club for so many years and I'm sure our supporters will be thrilled with this news".

Both these Chinese transactions from Russian Federation, he said, occurred after the CAATSA sanctions statute came into force.

In a Thursday statement, the US State Department said that the sanctions had been invoked under Section 231 of Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017 (CAATSA) "for engaging in significant transactions with persons on the [List of Specified Persons]".

The Trump administration imposed sanctions on the Chinese military on Thursday for buying fighter jets and missile systems from Russian Federation, in breach of a sweeping U.S. sanctions law punishing Moscow for meddling in the 2016 United States election.

The sanctions imposed by United States against China over military cooperation with Russian Federation, are a gross violation of the principles of worldwide relations, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Friday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Beijing has lodged complaints with Washington over the "unreasonable action" and has urged the United States to revoke the sanctions or face unspecified "consequences".

They block the Chinese agency, and Li, from applying for export licences and participating in the US financial system.

They also restrict EDD's access to global financial markets by blocking foreign exchange transactions under USA jurisdiction or any transactions in the U.S. financial system.

According to the US, China's purchase of Russian jets and surface-to-air missile equipment violated a 2017 law that was meant to punish Russian President Vladimir Putin's government for interfering in the 2016 US elections.

This is the second time in barely one week that Washington announces punitive measures against a Chinese enterprise, whose authorities clarified their firm opposition to actions sustained on foreign laws applied on its citizens or companies.

Among the blacklisted people was billionaire mogul Yevgeny Prigozhin, known as "Putins chef" and allegedly responsible for orchestrating the digital fake news campaign against the US. Some of these people were among those indicted by special counsel Robert Muller for allegedly meddling in the USA election. Russian Federation has repeatedly denied such allegations.

For all of Russia's seemingly upbeat rhetoric the new measures can hurt the country's struggling economy. "They are aimed at imposing costs on Russian Federation in response to its malign activities".
