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.

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.
