US, EU slap new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine

The United States, together with the European Union and Canada, Friday slapped new sanctions on more than a dozen Russian officials and businesses in response to the country s continued aggression in Ukraine. Today s action targets individuals and entities playing a role in Russia s unjustified attacks on Ukrainian naval vessels in the Kerch Strait, the purported annexation of Crimea, and backing of illegitimate separatist government elections in eastern Ukraine, said a statement from the US Treasury. Six officials were targeted, along with six Russian defense firms, and two Russian energy and construction companies operating in Crimea.
