The Biden administration declared a national emergency on Thursday, slapping sanctions on more than three dozen people in Russia and expelling 10 diplomats, in an about-face after the US reversed course of two warships heading to the Black Sea.
President Biden signed an executive order detailing Russia’s actions in the SolarWinds cyber-intrusion and its interference in the election, accusing the Kremlin of working to “undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners,” according to a statement from the White House.
Russia also engaged in “malicious cyber-enabled activities against the United States and its allies and partners,” the statement said.
The combined actions “constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.” (Read more from “Biden Declares National Emergency At Ukraine-Russia Border — But Calls Back U.S. Warships” HERE)
