Russia says it will respond firmly to new U.S. sanctions

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow said on Friday it would respond firmly to new U.S. sanctions imposed against Russian businessmen, companies and government officials.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that no pressure could make Russian change its course and that the sanctions will only unite Russian society.

The United States imposed the sanctions earlier on Friday in one of Washington’s most aggressive moves to punish Moscow for a range of activities, including alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
