The expansion of the US sanctions will be studied and ‘reciprocal’ measures will be applied, the Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday.

On Thursday, the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added 37 individuals and entities to a sanctions list. The list now includes additional 11 Crimean officials, seven firms that participate in the construction of the 19 km (11.8 miles) road-and-rail bridge across the Kerch Strait, vital defense industry firms operating in Crimea, as well as a number of Russian energy giant Gazprom subsidiaries.

“We have to analyze what was expanded, but usually, in such cases, a principle of reciprocity is used,” presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
