Today POTUS announced sanctions against banks and three individuals. Given the build up to the present situation in Ukraine, would it be wrong to think the people/institutions that have been targeted would have taken preparations to shield the effect of these sanctions? Biden says he is holding the most severe sanctions in reserve to see if there are more encroachments to come.

This clip comes to mind?

Incredible how the Demented old chap can produce stupidity as though it is 'on tap ' .

There are no sanctions which will hurt Russia but the opposite is not true .

Russia could cripple the EU, which would make the rest of the world hold the US in even greater contempt .

Why is he holding sanctions in reserve? Unless he is back to the 'minor incursion' routine.

The strong sanctions are being held for if Russia launches an all-out invasion of Ukraine.
