US slaps sanctions on 7 Russians over Navalny’s poisoning, detention

The White House announced sanctions against 7 senior Russian government officials Tuesday over the poisoning and detention of Alexei Navalny. The penalties were imposed in coordination with the EU. Representatives from the bloc voted Monday to implement sanctions targeting four Russian officials. Senior US admin officials said the country is ’sending a clear signal to Russia’ with the sanctions.

He has done nothing to hold the Saudi's to account, happy to go at the Russians, but of more importantance, what about China ? Not happy at all with Bidens priorities, from an Australian perspective.

It's horrible that Russia poisons dissidents. Look up Michael Hastings, a reporter that broke news stories about a general leaking top secret intelligence to his girlfriend. He wasn't poisoned... His car (wifi enabled fly by wire Mercedes) was seen running from a black van at high speed and drove straight into a tree hours after he told friends he was being chased by us govt spooks.

The USA is in no position to lecture any country, over the treatment of their citizens. You can't bomb brown kids in a foreign land one day, then use your economic dominance to punish foreign countries for harming a single citizen.

Wait a minute, sanctions don’t work! I mean that’s all we ever heard from the Democrats and the MSM about the sanctions on North Korea and Iran. “Just wasting our time and squandering our good will world wide” is what they used to say...🤔...wonder what changed.

When are we going to stop playing games, when are we going to shut off Russian business and government structures from the Swift banking system? How many more Russian opposition leaders have to be put in the ground, how many more countries to be invaded and terrorized by unmarked Russian Mercenaries, time to say enough is enough?

Typical meddling in business other than their own. Par for the course for leftists like robinette. This is plain and simply none of our business and neither is the khashoggi killing. Move along, show's over, nothing to see here

Not sure who the senior US officials are and their opinion that the sanctions on 7 Russians is sending a "clear" message. I imagine it will have zero effect - there's no evidence the 7 have any foreign assets and banning them from travel visas is laughable. The term ROFL definitely applies.

But why, Joe? Nalvany's poisoning was surely just an instance of "different cultural norms", right?

What signal are US admin officials sending to Russia by imposing meme sanctions on 7 people who have the entire geographic stretch of Asia to work with from the Baltic to the Pacific? That they can't actually do anything that doesn't boil down to a meme? Well thanks for giving me a chuckle.

I feel as someone out of the western world living in this great Russian Country. that it is time for the Russian Government to mirror the west in sanctions.. One way would be for Russia to stop Stream 2 and turn off the tap on Stream 1.and watch Europe freeze or pay astronomical prices for US. LNG gas., (if they will sell it as at the moment they can't even provide for their own Citizens) Then after EU has stopped being full idiots. and remove such unwarranted sanctions which must be signed off by the EU.. Will the tap be turned back on.. Russia should put hard sanctions on the USA for the murder of 5 Unarmed US citizens on Capital Hill.
