The Kremlin says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s proposal to ban all Russians from Western countries went off the charts and is seen “extremely negatively” in Moscow.
The Ukrainian leader told The Washington Post current Western sanctions against Moscow were too weak, adding the West should close its borders against Russians.
“The irrationality of thinking in this case is off the charts,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov tells reporters.
“This can only be viewed extremely negatively. Any attempt to isolate Russians or Russia is a process that has no prospects,” Peskov adds.
