MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. Moscow believes intentions of the United States to expand the sanction list are illogical, unfriendly and undermining for relations between both nations, Press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"This is continuation of the unfriendly line against Russia that runs counter to the logic," Peskov said. "This is continuation of the line having the devastating effect for bilateral relations," he added.
Russia will prepare measures against the expansion of the US sanction list, Dmitry Peskov went on to say.
"Certainly, based on the reciprocity principle, the Russian side will initially review these decisions taken [by the US] and then pool proposals on possible countermeasures," Peskov said.
The reciprocity principle traditionally prevails in such matters, the press secretary said. "We may only regret that Washington selects such a line sharply contrasting to demands of the time, contrary to the common sense, contrary to the need for interaction, buildup of cooperation, and so on," Peskov added.
