Kremlin warns against further Western sanctions

MOSCOW, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Moscow has been considering a set of new measures in case the West continues its anti-Russian policy, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

"We repeatedly said that Russia has not been an adherent of sanctions language, nor it has initiated the sanctions," RIA Novosti news agency quoted Peskov as saying.

Still, he said, Moscow has worked out various options in case its partners would continue their "non-constructive or even destructive" practice.

On Aug. 7, Moscow banned imports of fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry and fish from the United States and its allies in retaliation for their sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

On Monday, some Russian media reported that Moscow was mulling a ban on imports of Western industrial products, including cars, as well as a closure of Russian airspace to European Union and U.S. airlines.

Peskov declined to comment on those reports.

He also said it is premature to speak about a face-to-face meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

"These talks are not easy, so various formats are possible. They must be well-prepared," Peskov said.

Putin and Poroshenko met informally on June 6 during D-Day celebrations in France.
