So far, the U.S. has levied seven sanctions against Russia this year, the same number as the European Union, according to a list compiled by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. The U.S. decided to extend economic sanctions by one year in January 2017 before imposing sanctions on 38 individuals and entities on June 20, making for 2 sanctions in total. That is a far cry from 2014 when the war in Ukraine was at its height and Malaysia Airlines flight 17 was shot down, killing all 298 people on board. That year, the U.S. and EU imposed 13 and 14 sanctions on Russia respectively.
