Thursday, April 7, 2022

The United States has imposed new sanctions on Russia over its aggression against Ukraine.

The White House says the United States has imposed sanctions on Putin's daughters and Russian banks, according to reports from Washington. The sanctions include the Russian president's ex-wife.

The White House added that the wife and daughter of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov were also included in the US sanctions.

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and former Prime Minister Mikhail Mishtoosten are also among the sanctions.

The White House has said that these people have become rich with the money of the Russian people, some of whom are helping President Putin in his war.

The U.S. official said most of Putin's assets were hidden from family members, so he was included in the sanctions.

According to the White House, the new US sanctions include large Russian public and private financial institutions.
