RUSSIA has placed an entry ban on the family of U.S. President Joe Biden, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow said on Tuesday.

Biden’s wife, Jill and daughter, Ashley would no longer be allowed to travel to Russia.

The president himself and Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, as well as hundreds of lawmakers, are already on the blacklist.

The Foreign Ministry said Russia had in total placed new bans on 25 U.S. nationals, including well-known Prof. Francis Fukuyama, for having taken “Russophobic” positions.
