US, EU each set to impose new sanctions on Russia

Washington, Sep 28 (UNI) The United States and the European Union are each set to impose their own new set of sanctions on Russia, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed officials.
The White House will seek to impose economic pain via critical state-linked financial institutions, potentially the Russian Deposit Insurance Agency, National Payment Card System (Mir), Central Counterparty National Clearing Center, and the National Settlement Depository, the report said on Tuesday.
The Biden administration is also allegedly considering blocking more Russian banks from the SWIFT global messaging system, adding export controls on more goods, and imposing sanctions on more state-run companies.
