Britain is looking with envy at U.S. President Donald Trump’s freedom to hit wealthy Russians with tough sanctions in the aftermath of the Salisbury nerve agent poisoning.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he is paying close attention to the Trump’s decision in April to target dozens of tycoons, companies and key allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Those caught included Oleg Deripaska, the billionaire founder and majority shareholder of En+ Group Plc.
