New Russia sanctions

16 Jul, 2014

Obama announces new sanctions against Russia aiming at banking, energy and defense entities.  The new sanctions are mainly a response to the country allowing weapons to cross into Ukraine, as well as other related issues.

I have repeatedly made it clear that Russia must halt the flow of weapons and fighters across the border into Ukraine. I have  made this clear directly to [Russian President] Putin.
