The US State Department said the sanctions were in response to "the use of a "Novichok" nerve agent in an attempt to assassinate United Kingdom citizen Sergei Skripal" - a former Russian double agent - and his daughter Yulia.
The new sanctions, details of which were not released, were to take effect following a 15-day Congressional notification period, she said.
The US state department will impose sanctions on Russian Federation after it determined Moscow used a nerve agent to attack the Skripals. In the past, such exports are said to have included items like electronic devices and components, as well as test and calibration equipment for avionics. The measures are scheduled to go into effect on or around August 22, according to the State Department.
Sanctions waivers are in place for certain key sectors, including space flight activities and commercial aviation safety, the official said.
The new sanctions follow criticism of President Donald Trump for his refusal to call out Putin directly for transgressions including interference in the 2016 presidential election.
