US hits Russia with new sanctions over Crimea

The United States will introduce a new set of anti-Russia sanctions over Moscow's activities in Crimea, US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker (pictured) stated on Thursday.

"These are sanctions on three individuals and nine entities that are supporting Russia’s attempts to integrate the Crimea region of Ukraine through private investments and private projects, or those who are engaged in serious abuses," Volker said in a telephone conference.

Since 2014, the US has imposed several rounds of sanctions against Russian in response to its allegedly "illegal annexation" of Crimea and its activities in Ukraine.
