Washington: US President Barack Obama expanded US economic sanctions against Moscow, targeting 20 individuals inside and outside the government, as well as a Russian bank that provides them support.
Obama, warning of more costs to come for the Kremlin because of its actions in Ukraine, said he also signed an executive order that would allow the US to penalize key sectors of the Russian economy.
US president said the penalties were the result of “choices the Russian government has made, choices that have been rejected by the international community.”
