The US Treasury Department website reported that the United States imposed new sanctions on Russian entities on Wednesday.

The sanctions targeted several individuals and entities, without providing further details.

In another context, the press spokesman for the Russian Kremlin presidency, Dmitry Peskov, on Wednesday criticized the International Olympic Committee's decision regarding possible sanctions on athletes for participating in the "Friendship Games" in Russia.

Peskov told reporters today in response to a question about the Kremlin’s assessment of the International Olympic Committee’s decision in this regard: “Our assessment is negative, because intimidation of athletes undermines the credibility of the International Olympic Committee.”
