Lawmakers in Moscow are preparing to respond to the latest round of sanctions from Washington. And they appear to favor a broad salvo, rather than a surgical strike.
The economic measures prevent EU citizens and companies from investing in Crimea and Sevastopol. Russia's annexation of the peninsula in 2014 prompted the sanctions.
A taxi driver has admitted falling asleep at the wheel and plowing his car into pedestrians near Red Square, injuring eight people. He told police that after working for 20 hours, his foot mistakenly hit the gas pedal.
The streets around Red Square in the center of Moscow have had a distinctly Southern and Latin American flavor as World Cup fever takes hold. But the opening day has not been free of controversy.
Go along with US sanctions, and you'll face jail — that's the warning Russian lawmakers have for those who adhere to or facilitate business sanctions. Foreign companies have much to lose in this catch-22 situation.
