The U.S. might impose sanctions against a number of Russian oligarchs on Friday. As of 2 p.m. Kyiv time, there was no confirmed information about the decision.

However, it is known that the restrictions will concern the officials whom Washington considers to be behind the meddling with U.S. presidential election in 2016. The U.S. government announced the plans last month.

Most of the targeted officials were previously mentioned in the Kremlin report presented by U.S. Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.
