The Russian president commented on the publication a blacklist of more than 200 Russian personalities, this 30 January 2018, by the US Treasury. Asked by a reporter that he was not on the so-called “Kremlin” list, Vladimir Putin replied with humor: “It’s a shame.”

It is, of course, an unfriendly act, it complicates […] Russian-American relations and hurts all international relations,” he lamented, more seriously. “The dogs are barking, the caravan is passing by,” he continued, while the Kremlin decided not to respond in retaliation for the US Treasury decision. If Vladimir Putin regretted the publication of this blacklist, he also recalled that Moscow remained committed to improving bilateral relations between Russia and the United States

Washington’s list includes the names of 114 prominent political figures, including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev , as well as 96 Russian businessmen.
