Ukraine crisis: Obama orders ban on Crimea trade

US President Barack Obama has ordered a ban on the export of goods, technology and services to Crimea.

The executive order also imposes new sanctions on certain Russian and Ukrainian individuals and companies.

The West has imposed various sanctions on Russia since it annexed Crimea after the removal of Ukraine's pro-Moscow leader Viktor Yanukovych in February.

Mr Obama said his latest decision was to show that the US would not accept Russia's annexation.

Sad for the people in Crimea that did not want to be annexed by Russia but Putin should now have to cover ALL of the support for his new conquest. He stole it now he owns it.
