"You will find out about the other states as soon as the government’s decree is published and the respective list emerges," she noted.
Zakharova stressed that the president’s decree was a retaliatory measure against other countries’ hostile steps. "We have always highlighted that our foreign policy is absolutely peaceful. <...> But we have also always stressed that all steps, which we consider as unfriendly and hostile will never remain unanswered. <...> That package of measures, which is being taken now, is certainly a retaliatory measure. <...> These aren’t aggressive steps by our country, this is a response and protection of our country from hostile and unfriendly steps by those, who are preoccupied about us, and those who are somehow trying to halt our development: through the containment policy and through isolation attempts," she explained.
