Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has had the government come up with a package of economic sanctions against Turkey in retaliation for the downing of a Russian fighter jet, TASS reports.

“I’d like to raise the subject of economic sanctions. I have had the government come up with economic sanctions to retaliate an act of aggression. The decision will be made pursuant to the law on restrictive measures of December 30, 2006. In fact, the law is meant to be used in situations like this and aimed at ensuring our security,” Medvedev said.

He went on to say that the government should come up with the sanctions within 2 days.

“I suggest doing this within 2 days, so we could move on to implementing the sanctions as fast as possible,” said Medvedev.
