Open source
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation stated that Russia will practically respond to the sanctions imposed on Russians by the USA and Canada. The press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation reported this.
According to the comment, Washington and Ottava have been trying to pressure Russia “under forfeit pretexes” in order to impose sanctions on the Russian citizens and organizations.

“The restrictions are imposed as if due to the aggressive actions of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, “unlawful” Crimea annexation and they added new groundless accusations of "unjustified use of armed forces” in the Kerch Strait”, - the report said.
Earlier, the U.S. Department of the Treasury imposed sanctions against six Russian individuals and eight Russian organizations for the attack at the Ukrainian vessels in Kerch Strait in November 2016.
As we reported earlier, On November 25, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy attacked the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov. Ukrainian ships were rejected passage via the Kerch Strait, Russian coast guards opened aimed fire on them.

All 24 sailors on board were captured and delivered to Moscow – 21 of them were delivered to Lefortovo remand center, the rest came to the hospital of Matrosskaya Tishina prison.
Facing an extension of the sentence term, Ukrainian POWs detained in the Kerch Strait refused to testify in Lefortovo court. Sailors were distributed into six groups, four people in each. On January 15, 2019, Moscow's Lefortovo district court decided to keep 20 Ukrainian sailors in remand until April 24. On January 16, the court extended the detention term for another 4 sailors.
