Joe Biden signing embargo on Russia over Ukraine invasion

The White House Tuesday termed Russia’s deployment of its force into two breakaway pro-Russian separatist regions of Ukraine — Dometsk and Luhansk as “the beginning of an invasion’ as it prepared to force new sanctions on Russia.

During an interview on CNN, White House principal deputy national security advisor Jonathan Finer said, “We think this is, yes, the beginning of an invasion, Russia’s latest invasion into Ukraine.”

“President Biden has issued, today, an executive order that will prohibit new investment, trade, and financing by U.S. persons to, from, or in the so-called DNR and LNR regions.  This EO will also provide authority to impose sanctions on any person determined to operate in those areas of Ukraine”, a White Official said during  a teleconference.

He further added, “We will take further measures tomorrow to hold Russia accountable for this clear violation of international law and Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as of Russia’s own international commitments.”

Russia has started deployment of troops at Ukranian border. According to a witness who spoke to Reuters, a military convoy of more than 100 trucks carrying soldiers was observed headed towards the Ukrainian border in Russia’s Belgorod region.

Russia’s invasion vehemently critisiced by the West

Russia faced western sanctions and harsh censure at the United Nations after Vladimir Putin ordered forces to the Ukrainian border into Moscow-controlled territory in the east to the country, which he had recognised earlier.

Following reports of Russian armoured forces pushing into the Donetsk and Luhansk regions masquerading as “peacekeepers” in Russian-backed areas, the US imposed some limited penalties and warned that more would be applied on Tuesday. The United Kingdom is also expected to announce its own set of sanctions.
