A few days ago, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of four Ukrainian regions to his country, saying that the decision to unite the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and the Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions is “final”. He also called on Ukraine to conclude a ceasefire and return to the negotiating table.
Following this announcement, one of the countries that spoke out in this regard was the United States, which announced sanctions against Russian government officials after the annexation of Ukrainian territories.
The US State Department has indicated that hundreds of individuals, including members of the Russian and Belarusian military, will be subject to visa restrictions, while hundreds of others will face economic sanctions from the Treasury Department.
