Medvedev has prepared a response to US sanctions — a ban on American goods

In Russia figured out how you «punish» the United States for new sanctions on 24 Russian oligarchs and politicians: the government propose to ban the import of goods from USA.

The Chairman of the government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev stressed that the possible countermeasures against the sanctions will restrict imports of certain goods from America. This prohibition shall not adversely affect the Russian market, therefore, is to analyze all the risks and make an informed decision, said Russian Prime Minister.

By the way, Medvedev himself is called a true admirer of the American brand Apple. In 2015, the network actively discussed the appearance of the Prime Minister at the meeting of Putin with the Apple Watch, and last year he was noticed with the new iPhone X.

Last week, the U.S. Treasury made the 7 Russian oligarchs and 12 companies and 17 high-level officials on the sanctions list. Literally a few days later it became clear that this time limit does not pass without a trace: the oligarchs of the day were poorer by $12 billion, and the shares of the company «RUSAL», which belongs to the notorious Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, has fallen by almost 50%.

Moscow is already considering the options to «save» businessmen in this situation. The government is seriously discussing the possibility of creating in Russia the offshore zones.
