Hillary Clinton Claps Back At Putin After Russia Sanctions Her And Other Prominent Americans

Earlier today, Russia retaliated against the United States for its imposition of sanctions for their invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago.

Mediaite notes that there were some familiar names on the list of Americans the Kremlin decided to ban from Russia:

“In response to a series of unprecedented sanctions prohibiting, among other things, entry into the United States for top officials of the Russian Federation, from March 15 of this year, the Russian ‘stop list’ includes on the basis of reciprocity President J. Biden, Secretary of State A. Blinken, Secretary of Defense L. Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff M. Milley, as well as a number of department heads and prominent US figures,” the statement said.

Also on the list is former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton, who took the announcement in good humor with this Twitter posting:

Be sure and note there are no Republicans on the sanctioned list from Russia. Twitter users certainly did.
