America imposes sanctions on Putin, Lavrov and military leaders

“We are united with our allies and international partners to ensure that Russia pays a heavy economic and diplomatic price for its invasion of Ukraine,” US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement.

“If necessary, we are ready to impose further sanctions on Russia for its appalling behavior on the world stage,” she added.

Earlier, a White House spokesman said in a tweet that the Treasury would also impose “total ban sanctions” on the state-owned Russian Direct Investment Fund.
