MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. The Kremlin is surprised by the response to the publication of the list of foreigners who have been denied entry to Russia.

"The foreign ministry did precisely what it was told to. Of course, we find it difficult to understand such reaction," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, commenting on the situation.

He noted that the Kremlin was particularly surprised by "the response on the whole." "It’s up to our partners to make the list public, but such reaction to the mere existence of the list - this is difficult to understand in the current situation," the Kremlin spokesman said. He added that "one shouldn’t forget about the root cause of the situation".

He refused to answer the question whether this list had to be extended or reduced. "This is something for political scientists to comment on," Peskov said.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov earlier said he was deeply disappointed by the publication.

On Saturday, the EU mission in Moscow announced that it had received a list of 89 EU politicians, diplomats and military officials barred from entering Russia. The EU External Action Service said the list was "unjustified."
