Lavrov calls to settle North Korean issue through dialogue

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the new usa sanctions against his country amount to a "full-scale trade war".

"The backdrop for that is obviously awful given the Russian anger over the sanctions bill and the continued day-to-day revelations in the Russia probe", said Carnegie Endowment analyst Andrew Weiss, referring to investigations into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 US presidential election. According to Sergei Lavrov, Russia's Foreign Minister, a senior aide to Vladimir Putin will soon meet Kurt Volker, the American special representative in Ukraine.

The secretary of state said the USA has been purposefully deliberate in its negotiations regarding Ukraine, ensuring that no party feels cut out of the process.

-Russian cooperation following Washington's latest sanctions on Russia and Moscow's expulsion of USA diplomats. Trump's critics saw his objections as one more sign that he is too eager to pursue closer ties to Russian Federation, or to protect the former Cold War foe from penalties created to punish Moscow for its actions in Ukraine, election meddling and other troublesome behavior. Tillerson said Washington would respond by September 1. Lavrov said Moscow is ready for normalized relations if the United States "pulls back from confrontation".

The bill, which the House and Senate passed by wide margins last week, toughens sanctions on the three nations - specifically with Russian Federation over its presence in Ukraine and Syria, as well as the US intelligence community's assertion that Moscow tried to influence November's presidential election in Trump's favor.

The Syrian cease-fire reflected a return of U.S. -Russia cooperation to lower violence there.
