The United States has imposed new sanctions on Russia, the first under the administration of President Joe Biden. It comes just two days after the US president met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and proposed a meeting.

As the reason Washington mentioned, in particular, the allegations that the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service is responsible for a cyberattack on SolarWinds, as well as the alleged Russian interference in the US elections. Moscow has repeatedly denied these accusations. In addition, natural and legal persons associated with Crimea have been included in the new sanctions list.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier that Moscow condemns Washington’s sanctions plans and will respond to them on the principle of reciprocity in order to best safeguard its interests.

Sanctions slapped on Russia
Ten diplomats from the Russian Embassy in Washington are due to leave the United States. According to the American side, among them are representatives of the Russian intelligence services.

The United States also prohibits its companies “from participating in the primary market of ruble-denominated and non-ruble bonds issued after June 14, 2021 by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, the National Wealth Fund of the Russian Federation or the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. ”

The US Treasury Department also imposed sanctions on 16 organizations and 16 people for their alleged interference in the US elections.

In addition, eight persons and legal entities associated with Crimea were blacklisted, including members of the Crimean government.
