Russia outlined a broad range of potential retaliatory moves against new U.S. sanctions, including curbs on imports of American farm products and cooperation in nuclear energy and rocket engines.

The proposals, which also include a potential bar on U.S. consulting and accounting firms from working with state-owned companies and limits on imports of alcohol, will be discussed next week in the lower house of parliament, the State Duma. They also envision restrictions on visas for U.S. specialists working in Russia. Presidential orders would be required to impose specific measures.
