Biden Aims Sanctions at Russian Military, State-Owned Enterprises

WASHINGTON—President Biden promised to make Russian President Vladimir Putin an global pariah as he declared a wave of new sanctions meant to cripple Russia’s financial state, army and elites, the latest hard work to punish Moscow for launching a huge-scale invasion of Ukraine.

“Putin is the aggressor. Putin chose this war and now he and his region will bear the penalties,” Mr. Biden stated in the course of a speech at the White Dwelling on Thursday.
