The U.S. Senate approved a new package of stiff financial sanctions Friday against Russia, Iran and North Korea and sent it to President Donald Trump to sign.
She says the president has "reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign it".
The House of Representatives passed the legislation on Tuesday 419-3, and the Senate passed it on Thursday with a vote of 98-2, CNN reports. Moreover, the new US sanctions curtail the involvement of USA firms and citizens in Russia's energy sector, so additional restrictions would only hurt Russia's economy more.
Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday said it had ordered the U.S. Embassy in Russian Federation to reduce the number of its diplomats by September 1.
Trump will likely sign the law because "he's a prisoner of Congress and anti-Russian hysteria", Alexei Pushkov, a senator in Russia's upper house of parliament, said on Twitter.

He was not breathing when he was found and he was pronounced dead on scene, Phoenix Fire Department said. Phoenix police are investigating. "You feel like it's something that could happen to anybody", she said.
The U.S. Embassy in Moscow was not immediately available for comment.
The Russian foreign ministry said the 455 figure was the same as the number of Russian diplomats left in the U.S. after Washington expelled 35 Russians in December.
Peskov said the decision of U.S. lawmakers was "very sad news" for Russia-U.S. relations, global law and worldwide trade relations. And now, as a response to the Russian hacking in the presidential elections and some of the cyber concerns and what have you, the United States is absolutely right to take its own approach to Russia and to increase sanctions. The bill is expected to garner enough support in both chambers to override any veto.
Russia had originally threatened the ouster of diplomats and seizure of property in December after the US ordered 35 Russian envoys out of the USA and seized two embassy compounds outside NY and Washington in protest of alleged Russian meddling in the election.
Mr Trump's communications director Anthony Scaramucci suggested on Thursday that the president might veto the bill and "negotiate an even tougher deal against the Russians".
The German government has stood against the latest sanctions bill passed by Congress, which explicitly prioritizes the interests of U.S. energy companies.
Nevertheless, signing a bill that penalises Russia's election interference marks a significant shift for Mr Trump.
"The US makes decisions on illegal sanctions against the Russian Federation, seizes Russian diplomatic property, which is formalized in legally binding bilateral documents, Russian diplomats are expelled from the country".
Russian Federation on Friday ordered the United States to cut hundreds of diplomatic staff in retaliation for a new round of USA sanctions, and said it was seizing two US diplomatic properties.
The sanctions against Iran, modelled on previous executive orders, were created to punish entities that support terrorism, sell weapons to the country, or help its ballistic missile programme.
