The Kremlin says Russia will retaliate against new sanctions, as the West hit Moscow with a wave of economic punishments over its invasion of Ukraine.

“It goes without saying that retaliatory measures will follow,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov tells reporters.

“Just how symmetrical or asymmetrical they will be depends on the analysis, the restrictions have yet to be analyzed,” he adds.
