Russia places President Biden and PM Trudeau on entry stop list

Mar 15, 2022: According to a report by Reuters, Russia said on Tuesday it had put U.S President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a dozen top U.S officials on a “stop list” that bars them from entering the country.

In addition to Biden, US officials on the list include Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, CIA Director William Burns, National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan, and former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The ban was in response to sanctions imposed by Washington on Russian officials. The Foreign Office later added Trudeau to its list of sanctioned individuals.

These measures appear to be primarily symbolic, as the Foreign Office says it maintains official relations and, if necessary, will ensure high-level contacts with those on the list.
