Kremlin agrees with Trump that bilateral ties 'at very unsafe low'

President Donald Trump today blamed Congress for "an all-time" and "very dangerous" low in US' relations with Russian Federation, a day after he reluctantly signed into law a bill imposing tough sanctions against Moscow under mounting domestic pressure.

In a statement Wednesday, Trump criticized the bill he signed as "seriously flawed", arguing that it encroaches on his powers as president.

The Kremlin on Friday said it agreed with President Donald Trump s assessment that US-Russian ties were at an all-time and very unsafe low. "You can thank Putin for attacking our democracy, invading neighbors & threatening our allies".

The White House had announced on July 28 that the president had chose to sign the legislation imposing sanctions on Russian Federation over its alleged meddling in the us presidential election.

The lawyer explained the situation by attempts to damage the reputation of US President Donald Trump or to "continue further escalation of the conflict with Russian Federation".

Veselnitskaya's comments to Russian TV came the same day that the Wall Street Journal reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had called for a grand jury to look into allegations of possible Russian interference in the USA presidential elections.

One source briefed on the matter said Mueller was investigating whether, either at the meeting or afterward, anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign encouraged the Russians to start releasing material they had been collecting on the Clinton campaign since March 2016. He's pushed for warmer relations with Moscow but has bowed to resistance from both parties in Congress in signing the measure.

The sanctions target the Russian energy sector in particular, giving Washington the ability to sanction companies involved in developing Russian pipelines.

In the interview, Veselnitskaya said she had not once been invited to U.S. Congress hearings to tell her story, calling the investigations politically motivated.

Moscow, which announced a series of retaliatory measures over the weekend, has painted the bill's passage in the Senate as a humiliation for Trump.

He added: "It is a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russian Federation".

He said Trump had been "fully outwitted" and his administration had "shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way".

Russian Federation also said that, as of August 1, the United States would be barred from using warehouses that it has used in Moscow and from a modest property in the capital's leafy Serebryanny Bor district that is used by the U.S. Embassy, mainly for events such as parties and barbecues.

The Kremlin said Trump's formal approval did not "change anything" and no further retaliation was planned.

In addition to sanctions imposed on Moscow by the United States, the European Union, and other Western governments since 2014 over Russia's encroachments against Ukraine, namely, the Crimea annexation and the war in Donbass, last December, the U.S. seized two Russian diplomatic compounds on USA soil, a measure taken at the end of the Obama Administration over Moscow's meddling in the 2016 United States elections. The question is, does Russian Federation have so much of influence that it can sway the American election?
