Putin says US sanctions list targets all Russians

Russian President Vladimir Putin says a list of officials and businessmen close to the Kremlin published by the US has in effect targeted all Russian people. The list names 210 top Russians as part of a sanctions law aimed at punishing Moscow for meddling in the US election. However, the US stressed those named were not subject to new sanctions. Mr Putin said the list was an unfriendly act that complicated US-Russia ties but he said he did not want to escalate the situation.
