The Kremlin has not ruled out taking response measures with regard to Montenegro, Albania, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Ukraine, which have joined the sanctions imposed on Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Such measures "may certainly be taken," he said.

"We repeat once again that the fundamental principle is the principle of mutuality," he said.

The European Union said in a press release on July 30 that EU candidate counties such as Montenegro and Albania, members of the European Free Trade Association - Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway - as well as Ukraine had joined the EU Council's decision to extend its sanctions against Russia until January 31, 2016.
