White House to Sanction Russian ‘Elites’ if Putin Invades Ukraine
The White House said it was prepared to impose specific economic sanctions on individuals “in or near the inner circle of the Kremlin” as well as their family members.
I can confirm we have developed specific sanctions packages for both Russian elites and their family members if Russia further invades Ukraine. These efforts are being pursued in coordination with allies and partners. The individuals we’ve identified are in or near the inner circle of the Kremlin, and play a role in government decision making or at a minimum, complicit in the Kremlin’s destabilizing behavior. Many of these individuals are particularly vulnerable targets because of their deep and financial ties with the West, meaning they would be hurt by sanctions that are tying them to Western financial systems. I would also note that this is just one piece of our effort to hit Russia from all angles.
