Kremlin Threatens U.S. Over Sanctions

The Kremlin issued a warning that the U.S. will feel the “consequences” of sanctions against Russia.

“There is no doubt that the sanctions introduced against us will hit global financial and energy markets. The United States will not be left out, with its ordinary citizens feeling the consequences of the price increase in full,” Anatoly Antonov, Russia's ambassador to the United States, wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday night.

“I can’t recall a single day when our country lived without any restrictions from the Western world,” he added. “We learned to work in such conditions and not only survive, but also develop our state.”

The comments come shortly after Biden announced sanctions against Russia just one day after Putin recognized the independence of two Ukrainian separatist regions, as previously reported by Human Events News.

Despite this, however, Putin sent troops there for what he called a “peacekeeping effort.”

Biden called Putin’s actions a “flagrant violation of international law,” and said the United States will therefore be implementing “full blocking sanctions” on several of Russia’s financial institutions and members of its elite.

Biden said the “first tranche” of sanctions will impact Russia’s sovereign debt and that its government will be cut off from Western finances, meaning the nation will no longer be able to raise money or trade its debt in the U.S. or European markets.

He also said the sanctions will intensify if Russia continues its hostile movements.

“Defending freedom will have costs for us as well, here at home,” Biden said. “We need to be honest about that,” adding that gas prices will likely continue to surge.
