The new U.S. sanctions against Russia announced on Thursday failed to grab many headlines in Moscow on Friday morning. That’s because the big story, at least for public consumption, as far is the Kremlin is concerned, is Russia’s presidential election — just 48 hours away.
But while President Vladimir Putin has remained steadfastly focused on getting out the vote for an election he is virtually assured of winning, one Russian official has reacted to the Trump administration’s latest round of punitive measures.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Friday that Russia would expand its “black list” of American citizens who can’t visit or do business in Russia.
