Russia Sanctions Another 29 Americans

( Last week, Russia’s Foreign Ministry imposed sanctions on an additional 29 Americans, barring them from entering Russia indefinitely in retaliation for the Biden administration’s “ever-expanding anti-Russian sanctions.”

Among the latest round of Americans targeted by Russia are Vice President Kamala Harris, her husband Doug Emhoff, Washington Post columnist (and Fusion GPS propagandist) David Ignatius, and billionaire Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

During Thursday’s press briefing, State Department spokesman Ned Price, one of those targeted in the latest sweep, said earning the ire of the Kremlin was “nothing less than an accolade.” Price said he was also honored to “share that enmity with other truth-tellers.”

Ironically, the two “truth-tellers” Price cited were Pentagon press secretary John Kirby, who was also on last week’s list, and future MSNBC star Jen Psaki, who was sanctioned by Russia in March. It’s far more concerning that Ned Price considers Jen Psaki a “truth-teller.”

Price also gave a shout-out to the “truth-telling” journalists Russia also sanctioned whom Price said do “incredible work.”

Did he mean David Ignatius? Or perhaps Price meant George Stephanopoulos who also made the list.

Does Ned Price know what “truth-teller” means?

The list of 29 Americans also includes White House chief of staff Ron Klain, deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks, HHS Assistant Secretary Richard “Rachel” Levine, CNN reporter Bianna Golodryga, Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky, and a bunch of other people you probably never heard of.

In March, Russia sanctioned 13 Americans including President Biden and his son Hunter, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and every member of Congress.
