Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree allowing punitive measures against Ukraine in response to sanctions by Kiev against individuals and legal entities in Russia.

The Kremlin’s website on Monday reported the signing of the presidential decree, which said the measures were being considered in response “to unfriendly actions of Ukraine.”

The president also tasked the government with drawing up a list of Ukrainian firms and individuals to be targeted subsequently.

The government was ordered to “determine the lists of individuals and legal entities in respect of which special economic measures are applied,” and “identify special economic measures applicable to individuals and legal entities,” wrote the website.
