‘It’s like the Americans just copied the phonebook’: Russian officials respond to the U.S. government’s new ‘Kremlin list’

By | January 31, 2018

On January 29, the U.S. Treasury Department published its “Kremlin List” of senior political figures, oligarchs, and “parastatal entities” in Russia. The “detailed report,” which was required by the 2017 “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act,” was written in consultation with the National Intelligence director and the head of the State Department. The list names 114 high-ranking state officials and 96 so-called oligarchs in Russia. Treasury officials listed virtually every member of the presidential cabinet, every official in the presidential administration, the head of every state corporation, and nearly every major entrepreneur. Meduza collects some of the first reactions from Russian officials appearing in the news and on social media.
