US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in an interview with CBS that the US is considering further sanctions against Russian individuals.

“We’ve taken steps that have already prevented a number of Russian military sales as a result of the legislation,” Tillerson said. 

“And we are evaluating additional individuals for… possible sanctioning,” Tillerson revealed.

It is up to the US Department of the Treasury to make decisions on sanctioning Russian individuals and organizations mentioned in the so-called Kremlin List, which includes the names of 210 Russian officials, major businessmen and CEOs of state companies, TASS reported.
