The Russian trade ministry said that response measures to US sanctions on the export of dual-purpose goods to Russia have been developed.
Washington earlier announced new sanctions on Russia over Moscow’s alleged use of chemical weapons against a former Russian intelligence officer in Salisbury, UK.
The new package of restrictions ban the exports of electronic devices and dual-use components to Russia. The next round of sanctions includes banning Russian carrier Aeroflot's US flights, limiting diplomatic ties and halting US exports. Washington said that the restrictions may be avoided if it can confirm that Russia "is no longer using chemical or biological weapons."
