U.S. imposes new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine

English.news.cn   2014-04-28 21:17:44

WASHINGTON, April 28 (Xinhua) -- The White House announced fresh sanctions on Monday against Russia, targeting seven government officials and 17 companies.

These people, among them two from Russian President Vladimir Putin's inner circle, and entities were hit with a visas ban and asset freeze in response to what the White House called Moscow's "continued illegal intervention in Ukraine and provocative acts."

The Obama administration also took steps against high-technology exports to the Russian defense industry, White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

In response, Russia vowed on Monday to deliver a "painful" response to the fresh U.S. sanctions.
