MOSCOW, September 17./TASS/. A dialogue with Ukraine continues despite new sanctions Kiev imposed against Russia on Wednesday, State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin told reporters on Thursday.
"A dialogue proceeds," he said in reply to the query whether it would continue after new sanctions.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed on Wednesday a decree expanding the list of sanctions against Russia. On the list are 105 legal entities and 388 individuals, including some Russian parliamentarians with Speaker Sergey Naryshkin among them.
The Russian journalists on the blacklist work for the news agencies TASS, RIA Novosti and RUPTLY, the Izvestia and Rossiyskaya Gazeta dailies, the NTV and Channel One TV channels. Rossiya Segodnya Director General Dmitry Kiselev is also on the list.
Russian Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Communist Party's Central Committee, State Duma deputy Valery Rashkin and Chairman of the State Duma International Affairs Committee Alexei Pushkov were also blacklisted.
