Russia Sanctions: Indian-American Leads Joe Biden Administration In Execution

Washington: Indian-American economic advisor Daleep Singh is leading the Biden administration’s bid to impose punitive sanctions on Russia for its actions against Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees to recognise Ukraine’s regions of “Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics” as “independent”, on Monday.

This escalated tension in the region and soaring fears of Moscow’s Ukraine invasion. He also ordered Russian troops into eastern Ukraine which Kremlin called a “peacekeeping” mission in the Moscow-backed regions.

Singh is the Deputy National Security Advisor for international economics and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Singh is “back by popular demand” given the key role he is playing in the administration’s Russia policy.

“Russia’s long previewed invasion of Ukraine has begun and so too has our response. Today, the president (Joe Biden) responded swiftly and in lockstep with allies and partners. The speed and coordination were historic… It took weeks and months to mount a decisive response,” Singh was quoted as saying reporters in his opening remarks by the news agency PTI.
