Earlier this month the US announced it had added 38 Russian entrepreneurs, senior officials and companies to its sanctions list as part of an effort to crack down on the country’s “malign activity” taking place across the globe.
Now the Kremlin has confirmed it is working on retaliatory measures to hit back at the Trump administration.
Russia’s Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov confirmed the news.
He said: “I will not announce anything, we are working on that.”
A firm response to the sanctions from Putin was already expected and a bill outlining potential reactionary measures was presented to the Russian parliament earlier this week.
It considered measures such as banning imports of US agricultural, alcoholic, and tobacco products as well as medical drugs.
However, Mr Sokolov’s announcement is a direct indication Putin’s government are actively considering how to react.
Russia sent a grave warning to the US ahead of the military intervention and warned Trump not to go ahead with the attacks.
Putin is yet to announce how he will respond to the airstrikes going ahead.
