ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for sanctions against Turkey, including a ban on some goods and prohibiting extensions of labor contracts for Turks working in Russia.

The decree published on the Kremlin's website Saturday follows the downing this week by Turkey of a Russian warplane.

It doesn't specify what goods are to be banned or give other details. However, it also calls for ending chartered flights from Russia to Turkey and for Russian tourism companies to stop selling vacation packages that would include a stay in Turkey.
