MOSCOW, 9 Aug — RIA Novosti. Russia promises to mirror response to sanctions that the US plans to impose against Moscow, said at a briefing on Thursday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
“From Russia we introduce retaliatory actions against the countries which imposed sanctions against Russia. When the UK imposes sanctions, or sanctions, such as expulsion of the Russian diplomats, or any measures of a hostile character against the Russian side, we always respond adequately, mirror can be different to call it”, — said Zakharov.
If we are talking about any other country, we, unfortunately, have to act appropriately. This can be called a mirror, symmetrical, whatever.Maria Saharanafrican the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry
