Russia has slammed a travel ban on United States Vice President Kamala Harris, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and 27 other Americans.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that all will be “denied entry to the Russian Federation on an indefinite basis”.
The sanction affects top business executives, politicians, scientists, and journalists.
The action retaliates the Biden Administration’s “ever-expanding anti-Russian sanctions”, the statement noted.
The U.S. and others are increasing sanctions against the country over the invasion of Ukraine since February 24.
It is believed Zuckerberg was added to the list for limiting access to Russian news outlets on Facebook.
Russia recently banned United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, former PM Theresa May and dozens of others.
The list of the 29 banned Americans:
