President Biden is expected to announce Tuesday that the U.S. will ban Russian oil, natural gas and coal imports as part of his administration’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
A source familiar with the plans confirmed to The Hill that Biden intends to announce the ban, which was first reported by Bloomberg.
The White House said in updated guidance Tuesday morning that Biden will speak at 10:45 a.m. and will “announce actions to continue to hold Russia accountable for its unprovoked and unjustified war on Ukraine.”
The White House in recent days has been reticent to ban the imports as gas prices have soared, but there have been growing calls from members of both parties to ban Russian oil as punishment for Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
EU pledges to cut Russian gas imports by two-thirds before the end of the year
The European Union on Tuesday presented a new plan to reduce its dependency on Russian energy, amid Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, sky-high prices and a potential embargo of Russian crude.
The European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, wants to cease its buying of fossil fuels from Russia before 2030. And it has now presented a new pledge to reduce its purchases of Russian gas by two-thirds before the end of the year.
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
