Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took "further action against the network of Kremlin-connected Russian operative Yevgeniy Prigozhin, by targeting entities and individuals working on behalf of Prigozhin to advance Russia's influence in the Central African Republic".

According to the check, the USA president should provide the congress with a report about former and current officials of Russian Federation who are involved in the poisoning of Navalny.

Moscow denies the allegations but intelligence agencies found Russian Federation had used fake social media accounts to spread disinformation.

Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny is likely to remain in Germany for weeks as he still requires lengthy treatment to help him recover from poisoning, his spokeswoman has said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has invited the United States to exchange pledges of non-interference in internal politics as part of a large-scale programme aimed at resetting Russian-US cooperation in the field of global information security.

"One of the main strategic challenges of our time is the risk of a large-scale confrontation in the digital sphere", Putin said in the Kremlin statement.

He added that dialogue should be restored between Russian and USA officials on key issues of worldwide information security.

The claims about Russian meddling in 2020 follow over four years of allegations by Democratic lawmakers and USA media about a systematic Russian hacking, trolling and meddling effort in 2016, with the political forces behind those claims even accusing President Donald Trump of "colluding with" the Kremlin to get elected.
