Moscow sanctions Biden, 962 other Americans

TEHRAN, May 21 (MNA) – Russia said on Saturday it was banning entry to 963 Americans including US President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and CIA chief William Burns.

Moscow's move comes as the US government imposes sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin and other Russian officials, including members of Putin's family and Sergei Lavrov.

Tensions between the two countries of the US and Russia have escalated since the Ukraine war began, with Washington unprecedentedly imposing tough sanctions and mobilizing European countries and allies to put pressure on Russia.
