Will reciprocate after UK ‘Magnitsky’ sanctions: Russia

Russia will take countermeasures against the UK after the British government imposed sanctions on Monday against senior Russian officials, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Peskov said Moscow would respond to the decision by the foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, to put 25 Russians on a new sanctions list. One of them is Alexander Bastrykin, Russia’s top prosecutor and the head of the investigative committee.

“We can only regret such unfriendly measures,” Peskov said, adding: “Obviously the principle of reciprocity will be applied.”
