State Department spokesman Ned Price on Thursday quipped that he was honored after Russia slapped a ban on senior US officials and other prominent people.

“I have to say it is nothing less than an accolade to earn the ire of a government that lies to its own people, brutalizes its neighbors and seeks to create a world where freedom and liberty are put on the run,” Price told reporters.

“It is nothing less than an honor to share that with other truth-tellers,” he said.
