IOC mistakenly invited banned Russian to Olympics as coach”

"This sends a signal that Trump administration is not about to escalate the sanctions program in response to the alleged meddling by Russians in the elections", said William Pomeranz, Russia expert and deputy director of the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute.

"There will be sanctions that come out of this report", Mnuchin said in testimony before the Senate Banking Committee.

"Kremlin List" randomly targets Russian business competition - Finance Minister Siluanov The US Treasury cast a wide net to blacklist all prominent Russian businessmen without distinction, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told RT.

Washington's list could help Putin consolidate his support base by burnishing his image of a strong leader who stands up to a hostile US, some observers say.

The Trump administration, which has bristled at suggestions it benefited from Russian interference in the elections, held off on complying with the law until the last minute.

But the Russian leader said he still wanted to improve ties with the United States and would refrain from any immediate retaliation. "I should hash this over with Vladimir Putin today".

RBK, a Russian newspaper, reported on Wednesday that the business people included in the "Putin list" had lost a combined total of $1.06bn (£750m) in the 24 hours after its publication.

Those sectors already have been sanctioned for their alleged role in the US presidential election.

Russia hawks in Congress had pushed the administration to include certain names, while Russian businessmen hired lobbyists to keep them off.

"I wish that you do not think about what has recently accompanied the preparation for the Olympic Games. and that you focus on the competition", Putin said in comments released by the Kremlin.

Yet Putin indicated that Russian Federation would not respond - for now.

The 96 tycoons named in the USA list match the list of billionaires published by the Russian edition of Forbes magazine a year ago.

Putin called the release of the list an "unfriendly step" that he said would further complicate US-Russian ties as well as worldwide relations in general.

"The picture that you [get] when you look at the grand total of is that the administration isn't willing to confront this and that's going to encourage the Russians to behave badly", said O'Toole.

The seven-page unclassified report also includes the names of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and energy giant Rosneft's chief executive Igor Sechin considered to be Russia's second most powerful man.

The Treasury Department was careful to say no one on this list is being sanctioned, so why did Congress want to draw it up, and what does being on that list mean? Where were Russia's senior court judges and the head of the election commission? It's been informally referred to as the "Putin list".
