President Announces New Sanctions Against Russia

Hundreds of new sanctions imposed against that country after Alexei Navalny died in Siberian prison.

President Joe Biden announced that over 500 new sanctions were being imposed upon Russia roughly a week after the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was imprisoned in Siberia. The European Union also added sanctions against that nation on Friday, the day before the 2nd anniversary of the beginning of the war in Ukraine.

“The American people and people around the world understand that the stakes of this fight extend far beyond Ukraine,” President Biden stated. “If Putin does not pay the price for his death and destruction, he will keep going. And the costs to the United States — along with our NATO Allies and partners in Europe and around the world — will rise.”

“Russia’s financial sector, defense industrial base, procurement networks, and sanctions evaders across multiple continents,” the president said. “They will ensure Putin pays an even steeper price for his aggression abroad and repression at home.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the president and his foreign advisors as they increase sanctions against Russia.
  • For members of the House of Representatives to be discerning as they consider further aid to Ukraine.
