MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday said Russia would retaliate should Britain impose new sanctions against Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.

Britain threatened on Tuesday to block Russian companies from raising capital in London and to expose property and company ownership if Russia invades Ukraine, a move Moscow has repeatedly denied planning.
