Russia looks for tit-for-tat response to new US sanctions


On September 9 in Paris Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Alexey Ulyukaev answered the question about the Russian response to toughening of the United Stated sanctions against Russia decided in early September. According to his words Moscow is going to look for a tit-for-tat response to new United States sanctions against Russia.

"These sanctions are of a personal nature, they are aimed at certain individuals and companies, not of a sectoral nature. That is why I believe that in this situation we will look for some tit-for-tat response," Alexey Ulyukaev said.

The United States on September 2  introduced sanctions against several Russian defense sector enterprises on charges of cooperation with Iran, North Korea and Syria. Among them are Rosoboronexport, KBP Instrument Design Bureau (Tula), Novosibirsk manufacturer of night vision devices and electro-optical converters - Katod company, NPO Mashinostroyenia (Moscow region), and Russian Aircraft Corporation Mig.
