Russian President Vladimir Putin said it was “premature” to discuss retaliation against a possible new round of sanctions the U.S. is considering against Moscow, Reuters reported Saturday.

“We need to see how it is all going to be. That is why it is premature to speak publicly about our retaliatory actions,” Putin said according to the state news agency RIA.

Earlier this week the Senate voted overwhelmingly to impose new sanctions on Russia. It also approved a measure that would force President Donald Trump to get congressional approval before relaxing any existing sanctions, Reuters reported.

Family seeks live-in nanny for their ‘haunted’ house 

If you are a nanny and are not easily spooked, a couple from Great Britain wants your application.

>> Read more trending news 

A family of four living in Scottish Borders is seeking a live-in nanny, WABC reported. The job description seems rather routine: preparing breakfast, getting the kids ready for school, dropping them off and picking them up. The job pays the equivalent of $64,000 annually, with 28 vacation days.

Oh, there’s one catch: the house the family has lived in for the past 10 years is supposedly haunted, and has scared off five nannies in the last year.

According to the job posting, the parents said: “We were told (the house) was ‘haunted’ when we bought it, but we kept our minds open.”

The nannies who left cited “supernatural incidents” as the reason, “including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving.”

The family continued that while they personally had not seen any supernatural occurrences, they wanted to be as “up front as possible to find the right person.”

Get those résumés ready.

“I am about to go to heaven, I will help you from there,” Gloria Trevisan told her mother moments before losing contact.

Both Trevisan and her boyfriend, Marco Gottardi, both architects from the Venuto area of northern Italy, are among those feared dead after the blaze at the 24-story high-rise apartment.

Trevisan’s mother recorded her telephone calls after receiving the first one, the Telegraph reported.

“These are terrible, agonizing calls,” said Maria Cristina Sandri, the lawyer for Trevisan’s family. Sandri told the Telegraph that she cried as she listened to the audio files of the telephone calls with Trevisan’s parents on Thursday morning.

According to Italian media sources, Trevisan, 26, called her parents Wednesday and told her parents there was a fire on the third floor, but seemed certain that firefighters would have the blaze under control. At 2 a.m. she was more frantic, and by 4:07 a.m. smoke was pouring into the apartment, the Telegraph reported. That’s when Trevisan made her final call.

“I am so sorry I can never hug you again,” she said, in a conversation related to La Repubblica newspaper by her father, Loris Trevisan. “I had my whole life ahead of me. It’s not fair. I don’t want to die. I wanted to help you, to thank you for all you did for me.”

Gottardi also called his family, at 2:45 a.m. and again 15 minutes later, the Independent reported. In his second call, he said the apartment was “flooded with smoke” and the situation had reached an emergency stage, according to the man’s father, Giannino Gottardi.

In his final call, Marco Gottardi was even more pessimistic, the Telegraph reported.

"There's nothing more we can do than wait for a miracle," he said.

The toy is currently very popular with children. Manufacturers claim they help children to alleviate symptoms of ADHD, autism or hyperactivity, The Local.de reported.

Customs officials said the fidget spinners arrived in several import shipments from China.
