RUSSIA BANS NINE AMERICAN POLITICIANS FROM THE COUNTRY
Russia has banned nine American politicians from entering the country – including Senator John McCain-after the US President announced tougher sanctions against Russia.
This afternoon, Barack Obama issued more sanctions against Russian officials over the Ukraine crisis.
He’s also revealed the US is imposing restrictions on a bank that supports Vladimir Putin’s leadership because Russia hasn’t tried to ease tensions in Crimea.
Barack Obama says Ukrainians shouldn’t have to chose between the West and Russia.
