How will Vladimir Putin respond to US sanctions?

The Kremlin said on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin will decide how to counteract the sanctions imposed by the United States, although he did not give signals on deadlines, a day after the government of President Joe Biden applied a series of punitive measures against Russia.

The US government on Thursday blacklisted Russian companies, expelled Russian diplomats and banned US banks from buying sovereign bonds from the Russian central bank, national wealth funds and the Ministry of Finance.
