New US sanctions target Russian media and consultant services, White House says

The United States will sanction three major Russian television stations, and deny all Russian companies access to consulting and accounting services offered by US firms, according to a statement released Sunday by the White House.

The moves against Joint Stock Company Channel One Russia, Television Station Russia-1, and Joint Stock Company NTV Broadcasting Company prohibit any US company from financing them through advertising or selling them equipment.

“US companies should not be in the business of funding Russian propaganda,” says a senior White House official who requested anonymity.
