New sanctions on Russia which US President Donald Trump has signed into law are tantamount to a "full-scale trade war," Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

Medvedev also said in a Facebook post that the sanctions showed the Trump administration was utterly powerless.

"The hope that our relations with the new American administration would improve is finished," he wrote.
