    View Author 12 September 2014

    On September 12, the United States implemented another round of economic sanctions against Russia in response to the continued crisis in eastern Ukraine. 

    On September 11, U.S. President Barack Obama declared the U.S. would “join the European Union in announcing that we will intensify our coordinated sanctions on Russia.” The U.S. and EU have sought to impose sanctions in lockstep in order to increase economic pressure on Russia in an attempt to address the situation in Ukraine. The EU published its new sanctions today in conjunction with U.S. government.
