The deal, which would also penalize individuals linked to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the deadly crackdown on protesters in Kiev opposed to Ukraine’s pro-Kremlin government, comes as Washington also pursues a diplomatic track to lower the temperature of Europe’s most serious East-West geopolitical showdown since the Cold War.
