KEMEROVO, Russia (Reuters) - Russia has drawn up a range of measures in case the United States imposes sanctions on Russian sovereign debt, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Monday.

“We have a package of measures on how we will respond if such decisions are introduced, but we hope this will not happen,” Siluanov said.
