US sanctions 14 Russians, Lukashenko's wife

The United States Treasury Department imposed new Russia-related sanctions on Tuesday, targeting 15 individuals and one entity.

The Kurchaloi District of the Chechen Republic Branch of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, as well as 14 Russian individuals and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko's wife Galina were added to the Treasury's Specially Designated Nationals List.

The new measures represent the latest round of sanctions targeting Russia and Belarus over the conflict in Ukraine. Earlier in the day, Lukashenko insisted Belarus will not be joining Russia in its military operations in Ukraine as it has "nothing to do there."
