Russia on Tuesday blacklisted 25 more US citizens, including Jill and Ashley Biden, the wife and daughter of US President Joe Biden.

The restrictive measures are imposed in response to constantly expanding US sanctions against Russian political and public figures, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The rest of the banned people take part in the work of the so-called Yermak-McFaul group – an international group headed by Andriy Yermak, chief of Ukraine’s presidential office, and Michael McFaul, former US ambassador to Russia, which develops recommendations on anti-Russian restrictions.

Currently, the list of US citizens banned from entering Russia permanently includes 1,048 names.
