The Russian Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday that it had imposed a series of economic sanctions against President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and CIA Director William Burns.

Other prominent names on the sanctions list include National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, whose business relationships in Ukraine came under scrutiny during the Trump administration.

Psaki dismissed the impact of Moscow’s sanctions on Tuesday, joking that Russia’s official statement, which named “Joseph Robinette Biden” as the target of sanctions, accidentally referred to Biden’s father.

She also noted that the sanctions would likely be ineffective, as none of the names on the list had business dealings or assets in Russia and were unlikely to suffer from not being allowed to enter the country.

“It won’t surprise any of you that none of us are planning tourist trips in Russia,” Psaki said. “None of us have bank accounts that we won’t be able to access. So we will forge ahead.” Clinton also mockingly thanked the Kremlin on Twitter for her inclusion in the list, joking that she had received a “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the “Russian Academy” after the announcement.
