US officials, lawmakers sanctioned by Russia

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia says it has imposed entry bans on nine U.S. lawmakers and officials in retaliation to Washington’s sanctions over Crimea.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday released the list that includes John Boehner, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Robert Menendez, the head of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, other senators and administration officials.

The move came minutes after President Barack Obama introduced a new round of U.S. sanctions.
