Russian PM: "New US Sanctions Would Be Declaration Of Economic War"

As diplomatic tensions again escalate between the US and Russia following the announcement of new sanctions against Moscow earlier this week by the Trump administration, Russia's prime minister Dmitry Medvedev warned the United States on Friday that Russia would regard any U.S. move to curb the activities of its banks as a declaration of economic war which it would retaliate against. Medvedev said Moscow would take economic, political or other retaliatory measures against the United States if Washington targeted Russian banks.
