Biden announces US ban on Russian oil, energy imports over Ukraine invasion

TRT World says US President Joe Biden has banned Russian oil and other energy imports, mounting pressure on Russia’s economy in retaliation for its invasion of Ukraine.

“That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at US ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to (President Vladimir) Putin,” Biden said at the White House on Tuesday.

Biden acknowledged that the move — seen as his administration’s most far-reaching action yet to punish Moscow’s invasion — will bring costs to Americans, particularly at the gas pump.

Biden said the decision was taken in “close consultation” with allies, and added that both Democrats and Republicans backed the move.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
