Putin says Russian Federation fed up with United States insolence

"The sanctions are absolutely illegal from the perspective of global law and they violate the principles of worldwide trade and World Trade Organisation rules ... we are being very restrained and patient, but at some point, we will have to respond", the Russian president noted, adding that his response would hinge on the final draft of the sanctions bill ratified by the Senate and signed by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The legislation all but dashes Mr Trump's hopes for warmer ties with Moscow as his administration is dogged by congressional and special counsel investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has endorsed a bill ratifying a protocol to the 2015 agreement between Moscow and Damascus regulating the deployment of the Russian Air Force in Syria for 49 years, until 2066.

Before that, over the past weekend, key members of the US Congress announced the Senate and the House of Representatives had struck a deal for new sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea, and for empowering the American legislature to block potential sanctions easing by President Donald Trump. The veto-proof supermajority behind these bills all but insures that they will become the law of the land before long. It is, however, expected to garner enough support to override a Trump veto.

The bill, which passed the House by a wide margin this week, targets Russian Federation for alleged interference in the recent United States election.

The rare bipartisan vote in the House overwhelmingly passed a set of measures meant to punish Russian Federation after the US intelligence community concluded Moscow tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Moscow denies any involvement in both cases.

Putin on Thursday described the allegations as "hysteria", and said: "It's a great pity that Russian-US relations are being sacrificed to resolve questions of domestic politics".

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has repeatedly denied meddling in the election, said Moscow would only decide on how to retaliate once it had seen the final text of the proposed law.

The measure would apply terrorism sanctions to the country's Revolutionary Guards and enforce an arms embargo. But White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci suggested Trump in fact wanted stronger sanctions.

Russia's leader Putin has declared the still to be adopted new sanctions against Russian Federation to be a special kind of "cynicism".

Once Trump receives the bill, if he does not sign it, he has 10 days, excluding Sundays, before he must issue a veto and prevent the bill from becoming law automatically.

There was no definite word on when the Senate might vote on the bill but lawmakers said they thought a vote could be as soon as Friday.

"As you know, we have been very restrained, but at some point you have to respond", news agencies quoted him as saying. "It is impossible to put up forever with this boorishness toward our country".

"This goes beyond all reasonable bounds", Putin said.
