Russia may expand list of countries covered by its counter sanctions -- PM

Russia may expand the list of countries which are subject to its counter sanctions.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged the government to study the need to expand the list of such countries.

The government was informed that some countries which had not been subject to Russia's counter sanctions, introduced their retaliatory measures against Russia, Medvedev said.

"If it is really the case it is necessary to prepare an appeal to the president to supplement the decree [the list of sanctioned countries -TASS] with an additional number of countries supporting such decisions [Western sanctions against Russia -TASS]," - he said,

Medvedev said that it concerns the countries that previously did not support sanctions against Russia, and therefore were not covered by the Russian response.

"I would ask the Ministry of Agriculture and the government's administration to clarify this issue and, if necessary, to prepare an appeal of the government to change those acts, which we approved earlier, and proposals how to supplement the decree of the president," - the head of the government said.
