The Treasury Department announced  in a statement  on Friday that the U.S. will be imposing new sanctions on Russia due to its' "continued aggression in Ukraine." The sanctions will target six Russian officials and eight companies for their activities related to supporting Russia's occupation of southeastern Ukraine.

The move will freeze all property belonging to the individuals and entities in question and will prohibit U.S. citizens from transacting with them.

The Treasury Department's announcement comes on the same day as both Canada and the E.U.
