Russia announced sanctions Tuesday against Americans, including President Joe Biden, his scandal-scarred son Hunter Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Little ‘funny but true’ sidenote that is more punishment to the corrupt elite- than anything they have seen here in the USA:
So far, Vladimir Putin has done more to punish Hunter Biden for his corruption than the entire American government

In a statement, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the restrictions — which came amid waves of sanctions by the US and its allies that have crippled Russia’s economy over the invasion of Ukraine — were “the consequence” of whatist called the White House’s “extremely Russophobic policy.”
The move prevents those named from entering Russia and freeze any assets they have there, according to the BBC. Moscow called the restrictions “personal sanctions” and a “stop list” based on “the principle of reciprocity.”
The foreign ministry also warned that additional sanctions would follow against other, unspecified “Russophobic” US officials, military officers, lawmakers, business owners and media figures.
The measures — which target 13 Americans, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — won’t prevent them from engaging in high-level communications with Russia, the news agency said.
In a separate statement, Russia’s foreign ministry announced punitive measures against 313 Canadians including Trudeau and several of his ministers.
In response to Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, the US banned Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov while adopting sanctions largely cutting Russia off from the rest of the world financially.
Moscow did not specify the exact nature of the measures, which it calls “personal sanctions” and a “stop list”, stating that they would be based on “the principle of reciprocity”.
Also on the Russian list are US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
On the list too are Deputy National Security Advisor Daleep Singh, US Agency for International Development chief Samantha Power, Deputy Treasury Secretary Adewale Adeyemo, and US Export-Import Bank chief Reta Jo Lewis.
Russia also banned from entry Biden’s son Hunter and former secretary of state and Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The foreign ministry warned Moscow will soon announce additional sanctions against a range of “Russophobic” US officials, military officers, lawmakers, businessmen and media personalities.
Hunter Biden has been in the news for years about the contents of his laptop, where Biden is seen on film committing many crimes and where the contents have a long string of criminal conduct in emails- and yet Hunter Biden has never faced the slightest consequence for his corruption.
Despite the dozens of varying pieces of evidence the laptop unearthed of Hunter’s illegal actions, the press just won’t cover it. Furthermore, the Delaware computer repair shop owner has received death threats and is virtually bankrupt due to the Biden’s’ defenders.
John Paul Mac Isaac said he has faced harassment from Big Tech, the IRS and other government agencies ever since he took the laptop to the FBI, and then Rudy Giuliani who aided in the public release of its contents.
As a refresher, the New York Post writes that “the laptop came into Mac Isaac’s possession after the future president’s son dropped it off for repairs in April 2019 and never came back. The hard drive contained a trove of emails, text messages, photos and financial documents between Hunter Biden and his family and business associates. The files show a laundry list of shady business deals around the world with Hunter Biden looking to cash in on his family and connections.”
After the contents of the laptop were released by The New York Post in October of 2020, Mac Isaac said his life was turned upside down. He was forced to close down the shop and move his family to Colorado.
He applied for unemployment time and time again because each time the government would close his cases, he said. It wasn’t until he sent a forceful letter to Delaware Senator Chris Coons in December of 2021 which stated, “I would hate to think that I was singled out in a politically motivated attack. If a state agency was weaponized to punish a perceived political enemy, the country has a right to know.”
