BREAKING: Russia Sanctions Biden, Clinton, And Other U.S. Officials


I prefer sanctions over war any day, but sanctions can also be petty and downright evil in some cases…

Virtually none of the sanctions now imposed on Russia truly affect the Russian oligarchy, Putin, or the Russian state; what they do affect is the Russian people—normal everyday citizens who have nothing to do with the conflict.

In a somewhat cheeky response to sanctions levied by the U.S. government, Russia has decided to reply in kind by placing its own sanctions on top U.S. officials including Biden and Clinton.

While I believe that these individuals deserve this sort of treatment for being war mongers, it does represent a loss of U.S. prestige.

Countries are now sanctioning U.S. officials, responding to sanctions with sanctions, and looking to concretize their own monetary order all on Joe Biden’s watch…

Here’s more on the story:

The Wall Street Journal provided more details:

The Kremlin’s latest round of travel restrictions includes 13 people, and the foreign ministry said the measures could be expanded.

“In the near future, new announcements will follow to expand the sanctions list by including top U.S. officials, military, lawmakers, businessmen, experts and media people who are Russophobic or who contribute to inciting hatred against Russia and the introduction of restrictive measures,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.


ABC News had more on the list of sanctioned officials:

In retaliation for sanctions from the U.S., Russia’s foreign ministry has announced personal sanctions against President Joe Biden and many top administration officials including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. The sanctions also target Biden’s son, Hunter, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
