MOSCOW, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Moscow is preparing a response to a new set of U.S. sanctions, the Kremlin and the Russian foreign ministry said Thursday.
The U.S. Treasury Department on Wednesday sanctioned Russia's Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov and four other people for human rights violations under a 2012 law known as the Magnitsky Act.
"It is highly likely that reciprocity principle will be implemented Graziano Pelle Italy Jersey ," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
He declined to name possible targets of the countermeasures.
"Unfortunately, we are again forced to confirm our position, which boils down to the fact that these steps will be followed by retaliatory measures," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a weekly briefing.
It is said that a number of U.S. political groups still have a desire to follow the path of destroying relations with Russia, Zakharova added.
She said that currently around 200 Russian citizens and 402 legal entities are under various U.S. sanctions.
Former U.S. President Barack Obama signed the Magnitsky Act Giorgio Chiellini Italy Jersey , which was named after Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, in December 2012, imposing sanctions on Russian officials allegedly responsible for the 37-year-old lawyer's death in a Moscow prison in 2009.

In 2016, U.S. Congress enacted the Global Magnitsky Act Gianluigi Buffon Italy Jersey , which allows the U.S. government to sanction foreign government officials implicated in human rights abuses anywhere in the world.
