Russia will respond to UK sanctions - Peskov

Russian Federation will respond to the sanctions that the United Kingdom imposed on 25 Russian citizens over alleged human rights violation, in the same manner, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov (pictured) said on Tuesday.

The measures imposed on Monday by the UK include a travel ban and freezing of assets for Russian, Myanmar, North Korean, and Saudi individuals, one which is Alexander Bastrykin, Russia's top state investigator.

The Russian embassy in the UK released a statement on Monday calling the sanctions "outrageous," and announcing the countermeasures.
