Russian Foreign Ministry: Moscow to react to UK visa sanctions in accordance with world practice

Moscow will react to the UK visa sanctions in accordance with the world practice, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement posted by the ministry website on Monday.

"Naturally, the Russian response to the possible sanctions of London on Russian citizens will correspond to the diplomatic practice," he said.

Moscow has paid attention to the Sunday Times report with regard to the UK sanctions on Russians from the so-called Magnitsky List and asked the UK authorities to either confirm or refute that information.

"Our reaction will depend on their response," the Russian high-ranking diplomat said.
