Russia gives answer to UK sanctions

Russia has banned entry to 25 British citizens in retaliation for similar measures by Britain, Russia's foreign ministry said on Saturday, without providing their names, Swissinfo.ch informs.

Britain brought sanctions against 25 Russians and 20 Saudis in July as part of post-Brexit measures.

The British list includes Russian nationals Britain has said were involved in the mistreatment and death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, Swissinfo.ch reports.

"For all the subjects related to the death of S. Magnitsky, we have repeatedly given exhaustive comments and explanations which, apparently, London prefers to ignore," Maria Zakharova, Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman, said in a statement.
