Meanwhile, Britain's foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, called on the European Union to ensure that its sanctions against Russia were comprehensive, in response to accusations Moscow poisoned a former Russian spy in Britain, using a nerve agent.
In June, the United States sanctioned Divetechnoservices, also based in Saint Petersburg, for procuring underwater equipment and diving systems for Russian government agencies, including Russia's FSB intelligence agency.
"Of course we must engage with Moscow, but we must also be blunt: Russia's foreign policy under President Putin has made the world a more unsafe place", Hunt will say at the US Institute of Peace in Washington.
"We're always assessing for new targets" for sanctions against Russia, Mitchell assured the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee during a hearing. "And now, as it turns out, London wants to dictate foreign policy on Russia in Washington", the Russian foreign minister said.
Magnitude 7.2 quake strikes Lombok's north
The shaking toppled motorcycles and damaged buildings in Lombok's Sembalun subdistrict, including a community hall that collapsed. Quakes earlier in the day Sunday included a magnitude 6.3 jolt that caused landslides on Rinjani, an active volcano.
Britain, the European Union, and the United States have blamed Russia for an attack with the Novichok chemical agent that sickened former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, England, in March. When asked if the U.S. was eager to continue with the sanction policies and even strengthen them if Moscow doesn't change its behavior, the assistant secretary of state replied with a confident: "Yes".
Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the attacks.
Earlier this month the United States, citing the Salisbury incident, imposed sanctions against Russian Federation covering national-security related goods.
Washington has promised more, even tougher measures unless Russian Federation agrees to allow worldwide chemical weapons inspectors into the country and provides "reliable assurances" it will no longer use chemical weapons.
In New Tape, Lara Trump Offers Omarosa Manigault Newman "Hush Money"
That's according to a person with direct knowledge of what Manigault Newman has described as a multimedia "treasure trove". Tom Arnold continues to insist there's a tape of President Donald Trump using a racial slur.
But the European Union hasn't imposed any further sanctions on Russian Federation since Crimea and some are even keen to relax those. The EU also condemned the attack and many member states joined the United Kingdom in expelling dozens of Russian diplomats.
Marshall Billingslea, the US Treasury Department's top terrorist financing official, acknowledged that the threat from Russian Federation was "significant and continuing" but told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that without the sanctions "their behaviour would be even further off the charts".
His speech later on Tuesday will also outline other threats that Britain sees to the global order, including telling China that "with economic power comes political responsibility", and criticising their inaction over Crimea and chemical weapons.
