The US and European countries are protesting against Russia over Russia’s attack on Ukraine. The United States has banned attacks on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s daughters. The White House also announced sanctions on Wednesday against Russia’s top public and private banks, including Putin’s daughters. The new sanctions target Putin’s two daughters, Maria and Katrina.
According to a report, the sanctions issued said that Putin’s daughter Katarina Vladimirovna Tikhonova is a tech executive whose work supports the Russian government and its defense industry. The United States has said that her second daughter, Maria Vladimirovna Vorontova, leads a government-funded program that has received billions of dollars for genetic research from the Kremlin. Putin himself oversees all this.
“These people have enriched themselves at the expense of the Russian people, some of whom have been involved in supporting Putin in the war in Ukraine,” a White House statement said. He said this while talking to reporters about the ban on both the daughters. “We believe that Putin’s considerable wealth is hidden from his relatives, so we are targeting him,” he said. The sanctions announced on Wednesday include the daughters and wife of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
US President Joe Biden has condemned the alleged atrocities committed by the Russian military in Ukraine. Russia has come under fire after photos of hundreds of bodies found in the northern city of Bucha surfaced. Russia, however, denied any involvement in the attack.
According to a report, America believes about his daughters that they help Putin hide his wealth. He never publicly acknowledged that the Russian leader was his father.
