The Kremlin threatens to sever all the relations with Ukraine after following the sanctions imposed against Russian companies.

"We will soon reach such a level of relations with Ukraine that there will be no more room for reciprocity. Both for the first steps and those based on reciprocity. We will sever everything that we have. This is bad. And such news can only be taken with deep regret," Peskov said on Monday.

This was Peskov's answer to a question from an UNIAN correspondent in Russia how the Kremlin reacted to the news about the sanctions imposed by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on Russian companies, and whether there would be reciprocal actions.

Of course, the Russian side will react in such a way and in a way that is best consistent with our own interests."
