WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered sanctions on people responsible for Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine, including travel bans and freezing of their U.S. assets, and said a referendum by the Crimea region to join Russia would violate international law.
U.S. officials said a list of people targeted by the sanctions had not yet been drawn up but Russian President Vladimir Putin is not going to be one of them.
