WASHINGTON—The U.S. is cutting off its supply of Russian oil and gas.
In a statement March 8, President Biden said he would ban the imports of Russian energy.
“That means that Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at U.S. ports, and the American people will deal another powerful blow to Putin’s war machine,” Biden said in a late morning press conference from the White House. “This is a move that has strong bipartisan support in Congress, and I believe, in the country. Americans have rallied to support the Ukrainian people and made it clear that we will not be part of subsidizing Putin’s war.”
