  The decree stipulates that if foreign countries act unfriendly to Russian countries, citizens or legal persons, Russia will restrict diplomatic missions, consular agencies, and representative offices of state agencies in these countries from signing labor contracts and employment agreements with Russian individuals when necessary.

  Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zakharova said that this decree is a retaliatory measure against hostilities in other countries.

"We have always emphasized that our foreign policy is peaceful. But we have always emphasized that we believe that all unfriendly and hostile actions will never go unanswered."

  She pointed out that one of the reasons Russia made the list of unfriendly countries stemmed from a series of unfriendly actions by the United States, so the United States will be on this list.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said that the Russian government will soon release a list of unfriendly countries with clear identification standards and will announce it soon.

  Lavrov said: "If it only depends on us, we will probably return to normal relations, and the first step, I think, obviously all measures that restrict the work of Russian diplomats in the United States should be cleared, and this step is nothing. Not difficult. Russia responded by restricting the work of US diplomats in Russia."
