WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States is expected to impose sanctions as early as Tuesday to punish Russia for poisoning Kremlin critic Alexi Navalny, two sources familiar with the matter said on Monday.
The United States was expected to impose sanctions under two implementing ordinances – 13,661, issued after Russia invaded Crimea in 2014, but offering broad powers to combat Russian officials; 13382, issued in 2005 on Combating the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction – and under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Elimination of War Act 1991 (CBW), said the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity.
