Putin to Place Sanctions Against US Politicians, Obama Administration Officials
These will probably hurt us more than our sanctions will hurt them.
Check it out:
Russian President Vladimir Putin will sanction top US politicians and Obama administration officials in retaliation against Obama, who released his own sanctions against Russia. According to The Daily Beast, the list will be similar to Obama’s list.
Crimea voted Sunday to break away from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation after being occupied by Russia for nearly two weeks. Obama and the West promised sanctions against Russia if it annexed Crimea. Obama released a list of eleven people who cannot hold assets or travel to America. The European Union also placed sanctions on Russians but did not release the list.
There is no confirmation when Putin will announce his list, but he will address Russia’s parliament at 3:00 PM local time Tuesday regarding Crimea.
