Pres. Obama’s W.H. announces new sanctions on Russia

White House announces new sanctions on Russian officials, companies

The White House says the U.S. is sanctioning seven Russian officials and 17 companies with links to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

The White House says the penalties are being levied because Russia has failed to live up to commitments it agreed to under an international accord aimed at deescalating the crisis in Ukraine.
