US imposes new sanctions on Belarus after EU

The United States on Monday imposed new financial and travel sanctions on Belarus in response to the government's crackdown after December's disputed presidential elections, the State Department said.

The new sanctions, which follow similar moves announced by the European Union, expand the number of Belarus officials covered by travel and financial restrictions and revokes temporary authorization for business deals with two subsidiaries of Belneftekhim, the country's largest state-owned petroleum and chemical conglomerate, a State Department statement said.
