Efforts by the US and Europe to sanction two adult daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin shine a spotlight on a family shrouded in secrecy for years.
The White House said Wednesday it would sanction Mr Putin’s two children from his now-ended marriage to a former Aeroflot flight attendant, US officials said. The European Union, meanwhile, will take the same step after discussions among its 27 members, according to diplomats. The EU sanctions, expected to come into effect on Friday, would include a freeze on all assets held in the bloc and a ban on travel to member countries.
