Today, Russia sanctioned Jill Biden and Ashley Biden, the daughter that the first lady has in common with President Joe Biden, as well as 23 politicians and academics for what they consider “Russophobic actions” and the imposition of sanctions against Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Ministry informed in a statement of the new sanctions, which already include the President himself and Hunter Biden, the son he had with his first wife, Nelia, as well as the heads of the Departments of Defense, Treasury, State, and the CIA, among other high-ranking U.S. officials.

The expanded list of people banned from entering the territory of the Russian Federation includes participants of the McFaul-Yermank group, which develops recommendations on “anti-Russian” sanctions, the Russian diplomacy said.

Among those sanctioned are professors from Yale, Stanford, Harvard and Tufts universities, as well as Democratic and Republican senators, economists, and former and current officials of the Joe Biden administration.
