The United States has imposed fresh sanctions on Russia over agent Skripal.
Axar.az reports that this information was provided by the US State Department.
Washington will oppose "the extension of any loan or financial or technical assistance to Russia" by financial institutions and put limits on US banks from purchasing Russian sovereign debt, US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement on Saturday.
The US will also limit the export of goods and technology to Russia that could be used in the country's chemical and biological arms programs, Ortagus said.
Moscow said the new sanctions would damage already strained US-Russia ties.
The State Department said the sanctions would last for a minimum of 12 months, guaranteeing that Moscow would not only use chemical weapons and that it would be canceled if the victims of the Solsbury attack were paid.
