GENEVA, August 23. /TASS/. Moscow will give a tit-for-tat response to the expansion of US blacklists of Russian companies and individuals, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Thursday.
"We have been watching the US lists expand," he said. "They currently contain about 450 Russian economic entities. In fact, all the major financial, energy and defense companies have been sanctioned, as well as a great many other big and small entities and a significant number of state officials. In this case, we will definitely give tit-for-tat responses," Ryabklov added.
"Stop lists and lists of individuals sanctioned by us will be expanded," the senior diplomat said.
According to the deputy foreign minister, "the Americans should not think they have impunity simply because those holding US passports have the right to enter any country."
