Putin's Daughters Hit with US Sanctions as Money-War Escalates

Linkedin Share

The United States has largely avoided the possibility of putting troops or assets on the ground in Ukraine, due to the potential for a direct conflict between Russia and America that should a move could bring.

The rest of the western world has been kept out of Ukraine for similar reasons, along with a number of threats being made by Russian President Vladimir Putin about potentially using nuclear weapons to keep the globe at bay.

And so there is but a fiscal war to fight, and the latest move by the US in this cash conflict will certainly get Putin’s attention.

President Biden announced sanctions targeting Russian President Vladimir Putin’s daughters Wednesday as part of punishments related to alleged war crimes in Ukraine.

The sanctions will hit Mariya Putina and Katerina Tinkonova, Putin’s two adult daughters, as well as Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin; the wife and children of Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov; and members of Russia’s Security Council, including former president and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

The penalties cut off all of Putin’s family members from U.S. financial systems and freezes any assets they hold in America.

The decision appeared to come in response to Russia’s unforgivable war crimes in Bucha and beyond, where invading soldiers raped, tortured, or killed over 400 innocent Ukrainians.
