MOSCOW – The Russian Foreign Ministry says Moscow is reserving the right to take further retaliatory measures in response to a sanctions bill signed by U.S. President Donald Trump.The statement contrasts with Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov's earlier statement that "retaliatory measures already have been taken" — a reference to Moscow ordering the U.S. to steeply cut its number of diplomatic personnel in Russia and closing a U.S. recreational retreat.The Foreign Ministry emphasized that "we naturally reserve the right for other countermeasures."
