Psaki further told newsmen during a news conference in Washington DC that the sanctions, which are expected to include a ban on all new investment in Russia, will “degrade key instruments of Russian state power, impose acute and immediate economic harm on Russia”.


Calls for further sanctions have grown in recent days amid allegations of Russian atrocities in Bucha, with reports revealing that Russian forces had killed around 320 civilians during their occupation of the town, while the discovery of mass graves has caused outage in western capitals.
