MOSCOW, December 23. / TASS /. Russia may respond accordingly to the US sanctions, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said on Wednesday.
"I think that a tit-for-tat response is common practice in such cases. If a country acts unfriendly, this usually prompts a response, that is why our reaction of any kind would be normal," the minister said.
He added that the expansion of sanctions against Russia by the United States is not sectoral and will have no impact on the economic situation in the country.
"These sanctions are mostly personal and concern individuals and legal entities, they are not sectoral. Certainly, they are not significant in terms of macroeconomics. Simply it is a politically motivated behavior and there must be a political response to it," Ulyukayev said.
