President Joe Biden Bans US From Importing Russian Diamonds, Vodka, Seafood

Joe Biden is imposing even stricter economic sanctions on Russia by banning imports of Russian diamonds, vodka, and seafood into the United States.

This comes days after he announced a ban on Russian oil amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Business Insider says that this will block over $1 billion in Russian revenue. Also the two-way trade between the U.S. and Russia totaled $35 billion in 2019, per the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

“Putin is the aggressor and Putin must pay a price,” said Biden on Friday at the White House. “It will be another crushing blow to the Russian economy. It’s already suffering very badly from our sanctions.”
