According to Bloomberg, the US is planning to impose new sanctions against Russia and strengthen existing ones within a month. The correspondent claims to this information comes directly from Steven Mnuchin – the US Secretary of the Treasury himself.

Speaking at a White House briefing, Mnuchin said that the Treasury Department is envisaging new sanctions on Russia, all based on information developed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
