The bite will sanction hundreds of Russian lawmakers, U.S. officials say

WASHINGTON – The Biden administration is preparing sanctions against most members of Russia’s State Duma, the lower house of parliament, while the United States continues its repression of Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.

President Biden intends to announce the sanctions against more than 300 members of the Russian State Duma as early as Thursday during his trip to Europe, where he will meet with allies from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to formulate their next steps, according to US officials and internal documents seen by The Wall Street Journal.
