Russia not to leave US, Canadian sanctions without response — Foreign Ministry

MOSCOW, May 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will not leave sanctions imposed by the United States and Canada on Russian officials and companies without response, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said Thursday.

“Sanctions are not our method, but unfriendly actions force us to give a rebuff,” Lukashevich said. “The latest sanctions-related ‘creative activity’ of Washington and Ottawa is not an exception.”

“The names of new persons on the Russian ‘stop-list’ will not be announced publicly, but those who have been put on it will learn about that when they apply for a visa,” he said.
