Russia Will Soon Publish Retaliatory Stop List of U.S. Citizens

Moscow will soon publish a list of U.S. citizens it will take measures against in response to sanctions imposed on Russians over the case of opposition politician Alexei Navalny, the TASS news agency cited the foreign ministry as saying on Friday.

The Kremlin on Wednesday played down the impact of sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union, but said it would take reciprocal measures, Reuters writes.

According to Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova the move will come as a response to Washington’s latest act.

“Given how they [the Americans] are acting, including the fact that they published all lists at once, I think that we will cheer them up soon. Work is underway. Don’t think that noting is being done if we aren’t talking about it,” she said when asked when Russia would respond to U.S. sanctions over the situation around blogger Alexey Navalny.
