US to impose new Russia sanctions over spy poisoning in UK

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration says it is consulting with Congress about additional sanctions on Russia over the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in Britain this spring.

The State Department says Russia has failed to meet a 90-day deadline that fell on Tuesday to comply with a 1991 U.S. law on preventing the use of chemical weapons.

The United States and its allies have accused the Russian government of involvement in the March nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the British city of Salisbury. The State Department determined in August that Russia violated the chemicals law in the Skripal case.

Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says the agency will now consult with Congress on the fresh sanctions.

Russia strongly denies it was behind the attack.
