New sanctions against Russia are expected to be announced this week - Jake Sullivan

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan says new sanctions against Russia are expected to be announced this week.

“We are having conversations, as I stand here at this podium, with senior officials in the main European capitals, as well as in Brussels, on the full range of sanctions options, including sanctions options or pressure options that relate to energy.

I’m not going to negotiate that out at this podium. We want to make sure that we’re able to pull together a consensus along with the rest of the European Union.

You can expect further sanctions announcements this week. And we are coordinating with our allies and partners on what the exact parameters of that will be. But, yes, this week, we will have additional economic pressure elements to announce”, - said Jake Sullivan.
