The United States and Europe on February 25 moved to personally penalise Russian President Vladimir Putin for his invasion of Ukraine, imposing sanctions aimed at freezing his wealth while continuing to try to cripple his military and economic capabilities through other new restrictions.

White House officials said US President Joe Biden intended to impose sanctions and freeze the assets of Putin, along with those of Sergey Lavrov, his foreign minister.

Other Russian national security officials will also be subjected to the sanctions, and the US plans to impose a travel ban to restrict the movement of Russia’s top leaders.
