Both were veto-proof numbers. The provisions were included to assuage concerns among lawmakers that the president's push for better relations with Moscow might lead him to relax the penalties without first securing concessions from the Kremlin.

The legislation codifies sanctions put in place by President Obama following the Ukraine crisis and the discovery of Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

The sanctions on North Korea target its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes as well as use of slave labour and Iran is targeted for its terrorist activities, human rights abuses and ballistic missile programmes.

Lawmakers want to send the message that President Donald Trump will work with the European Union to dampen Russian aggression.

Russian Federation is open to co-operating with the U.S. on issues, including terrorism and cybercrime, but instead it "only hears unfounded accusations of meddling in United States domestic affairs", Mr Putin said. McCain asked. "Very little".

On Friday, Russian's foreign ministry ordered a reduction in the number of USA diplomats by September 1st, in response to new sanctions approved by Congress and sent to United States president Donald Trump to be signed into law.

The Russian government also seized two American facilities - a recreational country house outside Moscow and a storage facility in the Russian capital.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly denied that Russia hacked into the 2016 election -- a charge that Ryabkov also denied.

During the interview with Russian-state television station Vesti, Putin spoke about the areas of cooperation between the USA and Russia, including counter-terrorism and space exploration, but added that Russia may limit cooperation in areas that would be sensitive for the US, but didn't specify.

A spokesman for the European Commission said Friday that European officials will be watching the USA effort closely, vowing to "remain vigilant".

An official in the White House wouldn't say whether Trump would sign it, saying only that they are reviewing the bill and that the administration supports sanctions against the three countries. Since the Republicans' have failed to repeal Obamacare thus far, there's been talk from White House officials, as well as from Senate members, that tax reform is next on the agenda.

The Associated Press writes that it's "an idea that drew skepticism in Congress because [Trump's] administration had spent weeks lobbying for a weaker bill".

Trump now faces an even tougher decision. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, said in a statement.

Representative Eliot L. Engel of NY, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, called the bill "a strong, direct response to Vladimir Putin's efforts to undermine American democracy".
