    Putin’s sanctions on Americans unite Democrats, GOP

    Vladimir Putin probably didn’t expect that newly announced Russian sanctions on nine Americans – three top White House aides, three Republicans and three Democrats in Congress – would spark a bipartisan love-in in Washington.

    But that’s exactly what happened on Thursday as Moscow retaliated for expanded U.S. sanctions by freezing the assets of a select handful of high-profile Americans and banning them from travel inside Russia.

    Here’s an early response from a spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner on Twitter to Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to President Obama, for making the list:

    US Lawmakers Laugh Off Putin's Sanctions

    Some U.S. lawmakers are getting a good laugh at Russian President Vladimir Putin's expense today.

    The announcement that Russia would respond to
    U.S. sanctions with penalties of their own aimed at U.S. officials and lawmakers hasn't exactly gotten the response that Putin perhaps expected.

    How Obama Crippled a Russian Bank with a Stroke of a Pen

    President Barack Obama makes a statement on Ukraine, Thursday, March 20, 2014, on the South Lawn at the White H

    He may not take shirtless horseback rides across the steppes, or have a black belt in judo, but on Thursday, President Obama sent a message to Russian president Vladimir Putin about strength. Specifically, economic strength.

    The message was this: Whenever I decide to, I can pick up a pen, and kill a significant financial institution in your country.

    Obama’s victim was the St. Petersburg-based Bank Rossiya.

    U.S. sanctions hit Gunvor co-founder, prompting stake sale

    GENEVA (Reuters) - The United States added Russian billionaire Gennady Timchenko to its sanctions list on Thursday, forcing him to sell his near 50 percent stake in the vast oil trading empire he co-founded in order to keep it running.

    Hours after Washington slapped sanctions on 20 of Russian President Vladimir Putin's closest long-time political and business allies, Swiss-based trading firm Gunvor announced that Timchenko had sold his stake in the firm to Chief Executive Officer Torbjorn Tornqvist earlier this week in order to "ensure with certainty the continued and uninterrupted operations" of Gunvor.
