Russian president Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Russia is forced to retaliate if Washington goes ahead with what he called “illegal new sanctions” against Moscow and called.

He called the American behaviour towards his country’s “rude and unreasonable”.

Putin, on a visit in Finland, commented on the vote in the House of Representatives Tuesday, new sanctions on Moscow to impose, because of the alleged Russian interference in the American presidential elections. The sanctions have still require the approval of the Senate.

The Russian president has repeatedly American accusations of interference in the presidential elections contradicted. He said that Moscow will decide on retaliatory measures if the final text of the proposed sanctions act is known.
