Russia bans entry to 500 Americans, including Obama

The Russian Foreign Ministry announced on Friday it banned entry to the country to 500 American citizens in response to the United States sanctions against Moscow.

"In response to the regularly imposed anti-Russian sanctions by the Joe Biden administration, which, according to Washington's plan, are designed to inflict maximum damage on Russia by personally affecting officials and ordinary citizens of our country, as a countermeasure, entry into the Russian Federation is closed for 500 Americans," the ministry stated. Former US President Barack Obama is among the individuals who will not be permitted to enter Russia.

Earlier in the day, G7 announced the latest round of sanctions against Russia, expressing the intent to "starve Russia of G7 technology, industrial equipment, and services that support its war machine."
