There are also penalties for eight entities or individuals due to Occupation of the Crimea, Who was from Ukraine and Russia conquered it in 2014.
This action was taken by executive order of the President Joe Biden.
With sanctions, US financial institutions will not be able to purchase Russian debt securities (only in the secondary market).
This is expected to make it more difficult for the Russian Treasury to roll over its debt.
Six Russian companies have been identified as supporters of hypothetical attacks.
Actions were already awaited. The Russians sent soldiers to their country’s border with Ukraine in recent days.
I mentioned the three reasons
The United States has listed three main reasons for the sanctions:
- Russian hacker attacks on government agencies and an American company (this was known by the name of one of the target companies, SolarWinds);
- The CIA assessed that the Russians offered rewards in Afghanistan for anyone who killed American soldiers.
- Russia would have interfered in the US elections to help Donald Trump.
In a phone call on Tuesday with Russian President Vladimir PutinJoe Biden warned that the US government would take measures to defend the interests of the Americans, without specifying the timing or procedures.
On the phone call, the two talked to organize a final meeting.
In January, before taking office, Biden said he would respond to the Russians’ actions to interfere in the US elections.
The order should include a warning about other penalties.
The idea is to send a message to the Russians so that they understand how unhappy the Americans are, but without cutting diplomatic ties.
Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there would be retaliation, which would be entrenched on the basis of the principle of reciprocity. He also said that the sanctions do not contribute to the meeting of the two presidents.
The expectation is that US allies in Europe will make statements in support of US actions.
