Russia Threatens Response If Sectoral Sanctions Imposed

Russia will respond against the U.S. and its European allies if measures targeting entire industries are levied over the crisis in Ukraine, according to Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak.

“If the situation continues to develop and sectoral sanctions are imposed, it will be necessary to prepare more serious countermeasures,” Storchak said on the ministry’s Facebook page today. “In particular, there may be difficulties with money transfers if sanctions are applied to big banks and the financial sector.”
