Russia imposes personal sanctions against US President Biden
Russia has imposed personal sanctions against US President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
The sanctions list also included National Security Adviser Jacob Sullivan, CIA Director William Burns, White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki, and the President's son Hunter Biden.
“This step, taken as a counter reaction, was the inevitable consequence of the extremely Russophobic course taken by the current US administration, which, in a desperate attempt to maintain American hegemony, has relied on the frontal containment of Russia, discarding all decorum,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, in addition to top US officials, the list will include the military, legislators, businessmen, experts and media people who are “Russophobic or contribute to inciting hatred towards Russia” and imposing sanctions against the country.
