    Trump Administration Is Set to Sanction Russian Elite on Friday

    The Trump administration is set to sanction some of Russia’s ruling elite on Friday, delivering on long-promised punitive actions mandated by Congress after Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, The Wall Street Journalreported.
    The “oligarch” sanctions were planned before the nerve-agent attack on a former Russian double agent and his daughter in the U.K. last month, people familiar with the planned Friday announcement said, but the new measures are likely to fuel rising diplomatic tensions between the West and Moscow.
