New Delhi: Russia on Saturday released a list of 963 prominent Americans barring US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris from entering the country.
The move is seen as retaliation for similar action taken by Washington after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special operation in Ukraine.
Other Americans on the list include Secretary of State Antony Blinken and CIA chief William Burns, Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman.

The list was published on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Freeman was accused by Moscow of recording a video in 2017 in which he claimed Russia was plotting against the United States.

In a statement Saturday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said counter-sanctions were needed.

The main objective is to compel the United States, which is trying to impose a neocolonial world order on the rest of the planet, to change its position and recognize new geopolitical realities,” Russia said.

He added that Moscow remained open to “honest dialogue” and accused US authorities of “inciting Russophobia”.

On Saturday, the Kremlin banned 26 other Canadians, including Sophie Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In response, Canada imposed new sanctions on Russia on 14 people and banned exports and imports of luxury goods to and from Moscow.

These new measures impose restrictions on 14 people, including Russian oligarchs, their family members and those close to the Putin regime.

These people directly enabled Vladimir Putin’s senseless war in Ukraine and bear responsibility for the pain and suffering of the Ukrainian people, the Canadian government has said.
