Washington, DC  —  President Biden is announcing more sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.  Biden is calling for Congress to remove “favored nation status” which makes it very hard for Russia to do business with the U.S.

The President said there’s bipartisan cooperation to stand up against Russia’s aggression in Eastern Europe.  Biden said he’s going to ban imports of Russian alcohol, seafood and diamonds.  Biden added the U.S. will be going after Russian oligarchs as they support Russian President Vladimir Putin and harm Russia’s citizens.

Biden said Russian President Vladimir Putin must suffer the consequences for his war in Ukraine while referring to him as an aggressor. “Putin is an aggressor. He is the aggressor, and Putin must pay the price.”
