(Worthy News) - The Trump administration placed a new round of sanctions against 12 Russian individuals and businesses.
The sanctions are aimed at a company connected with Bank Rossiya and Russian businessman Yuri Kovalchuk, as well as others doing business in Crimea, a territory the U.S. said Russia illegally annexed in 2014.
The Treasury Department said one Russian intelligence officer and another official in eastern Ukraine received sanctions for taking part in "serious human rights abuses." The department also targeted eight entities for illegally operating on behalf of Russia in Crimea. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
