MANILA, Philippines — The United States levied new sanctions Monday on seven Russian government officials, as well as 17 companies with links to Vladimir Putin's close associates, as the Obama administration seeks to pressure the Russian leader to deescalate the crisis in Ukraine.

The U.S. sanctions were implemented in coordination with the European Union, which moved to slap visa bans and asset freezes on 15 individuals alleged to be involved with stoking instability in eastern Ukraine.

So what is BO going to do about the Russian flights at the coast of California, and around the U.S. Pacific island of Guam, and, that Russia says it will unite with China to fight America or any Western country that stands in their way?? Why haven't we heard about China's military base in Mexico?
