US waging economic war against Russia: Kremlin

Moscow: Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has accused the U.S. of waging an economic war against Russia.

“The US, undoubtedly, declared an economic war against Russia and they are waging this war. Yes, de facto this is exactly what it is,” Peskov told the state-backed news agency TASS.

The Kremlin official said Moscow will do “what in the best way corresponds to our interests,” without elaborating any possible retaliatory sanctions.

Earlier, a Russian foreign ministry official said that Moscow was working on a set of counter sanctions that will be “swift, thoughtful and sensitive for those it addresses.”
