This was stated to journalists by the Minister of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev.

“These sanctions, as they are largely personal and relate to physical and legal entities, not sectoral. They, of course, insignificant in a macroeconomic sense. It’s just politically motivated behavior that needs to be given a political answer,” Ulyukayev said.

“I think the normal practice is for a symmetrical response in such cases. If there are hostile actions of any country, they usually respond, so normal would be kind of our reaction,” he said.
