WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday froze the U.S. assets of seven Russian officials, including top advisers to President Vladimir Putin, for their support of Crimea's vote to secede from Ukraine. The sanctions are the most comprehensive since the end of the Cold War.


Huh?

They froze the assets of a handful of officials?

How is that "sanctions"?

Guess they thought twice before getting into a real economic war.
