Russian Federation says reserves right to retaliate over new European Union sanctions

The Foreign Ministry and the Moscow City International Business Center back in Moscow

The newly sanctioned individuals and companies will be subject to restrictive measures because their actions undermine the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, EU officials said. They were originally sold by Munich-headquartered Siemens for use in Russian Federation.

But Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was "grateful" to the EU, calling the sanctions a "powerful message to the aggressor about unwavering unity and solidarity among the capitals of the European Union".

Sanctions against the people and entities responsible for threatening and damaging the integrity, independence and sovereignty of Ukraine have been implemented as of March 17, 2014.

Bairstow's 99 puts England on top in South Africa Test
Bairstow became the unlucky 13th England batsman to fall just a single short of his hundred in Tests. But victory at Old Trafford would at least ensure South Africa maintain a proud away Test record.

Shortly after Russia's seizure of Crimea, a pro-Russian insurgency possibly instigated and aided by Moscow began in the Donbass region in Eastern Ukraine and has been raging ever since. Western companies are now prohibited from doing business in Crimea. Moscow denies the allegation.

Other EU sanctions on Russian Federation target its energy, financial and arms sectors.

Gas turbines are a "substantial element" in the development of new power plants, the council said. The proposal for providing weapons to Ukraine comes amid tension between the White House and Congress over how to respond to Russian interference in the 2016 election, and an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

'Everything The President Wants To Do, McMaster Opposes,' Former NSC Official Says
In an interview with MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt, Mr McMaster said Mr Trump has been "deeply briefed" on the strategy on North Korea. Bannon pushed for the U.S.to pull out of the region, while McMaster argued for even greater involvement.

The new European Union sanctions against Russia over the delivery of Siemens turbines to Crimea is in direct violation of worldwide law, the Russian Energy Ministry has stated. The move follows the transfer of gas turbines to the area.

The EU sanctions in question consist of an asset freeze and a travel ban which will now apply to a total of 153 persons and 40 entities based in or affiliated with Russian Federation. The EU Council adopted these legal acts by written procedure.

On July 28, Moscow announced countermeasures in response to the USA sanctions bill and to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff from the United States in late 2016.

Trump hits new low with white non-college voters
Americans are more accepting of gays and lesbians serving openly in the military than they are of transgender people doing so. Ever since May, polling trends have shown that Trump's base continues to shrink, as Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight wrote .
