However, it notes that the Russian government is "puzzled" that the amicable meeting of leaders has not led to more pro-Russian policies from the U.S. Just last week, the U.S. imposed new sanctions on Russia in response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy on British soil.

Russia eliminated its chemical arsenal "under strict worldwide control in full compliance with the Chemical Weapons Convention", the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on August 13.

President Vladimir Putin has not yet ordered retaliatory sanctions against the United States because Washington has not yet introduced new restrictions on Moscow and it is unclear what those curbs will be, the Kremlin said on Monday.

"If the leaders feel the need to meet and get back to the questions that we think should unite Russian Federation and the United States, but which provoke rejection among some circles in the United States, I think such meeting will take place", Lavrov said.

"All I can say is: if they ban banking operations or the use of any currency we will call it the declaration of an economic war", Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Friday. "Our American friends should make no mistake about it", he warned.

He said: "We have lowered to the minimum level and will further decrease our investment in the USA economy, in the United States securities".

Siluanov said the sanctions are "unpleasant", but nothing fatal.

The United States also seeks to contain Moscow's energy sector, which the Russian economy heavily depends on.

Peskov said Trump's criticism was aimed at promoting sales of U.S. LNG to Europe and the Kremlin considered this to be a manifestation of unfair competition.

Putin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov's comments last week reflected the deflated Russian hopes for improved ties with Washington or at least less punitive USA policies.
