CNN: Biden administration prepares to impose sanctions on Russia over Navalny poisoning and SolarWinds hack
Washington (CNN)The Biden administration is preparing to impose sanctions on Russia in the coming weeks over the poisoning and jailing of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny and the SolarWinds hack, according to two administration officials familiar with the Navalny plans and a US official familiar with the hack response discussions.
