President Biden has announced Thursday that the US will no longer allow ships with any Russian ties to enter American ports. This is the latest in his actions to sanction Russia for their unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and is in alignment with policies already put in place by Canada and European nations.

In his remarks, Biden stated:

“That means no ship, no ship that sails under the Russian flag or that is owned or operated by Russian interests will be allowed to dock in the United States port or access our shores. This is yet another critical step we’re taking in concert with our partners in the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada and further, to deny Russia the benefits of international economic system that they so enjoyed in the past.” 

Earlier this month, Biden administration officials began talking seriously about ramping up the sanctions on Russia after discovering civilians had been executed by Russian troops in Bucha, a suburb of Kyiv.
