Trump unveils new sanctions on Russia over cyber meddling


ㅤ”The U.S. will impose new economic sanctions on two-dozen Russian individuals and entities for cyberattacks in the U.S. and meddling in the 2016 election, senior national security officials said Thursday.
ㅤThe Treasury Department will target five entities and 19 individuals from Russia for actions ranging from the ‘destabilizing efforts’ in the 2016 Presidential election to the ‘Petya’ malware attack, the costliest and most disruptive in history.
ㅤTreasury says it will freeze the assets and prohibit Americans from doing business with the accused Russians.
ㅤSome of those entities and individuals — including the ‘Internet Research Agency,’ which allegedly used fake social media accounts aimed at sowing division in the U.S. — have already been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller.”
