President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on extension of Russian counter-sanctions until December 31, 2019, according to the document published on the website of legal information on Thursday.

"To extend from January 1 to December 31, 2019 separate special economic measures stipulated by the Russian President’s decree dated August 6, 2014," the document said. The government has been tasked with enforcement of respective measures, and "proposals on changing … the period of validity of separate special economic measures to be made if necessary."
