The US announced sanctions Monday against a group of Russian-linked Ukrainians, including two people who worked closely with Trump allies to discredit President-elect Joe Biden during the 2020 election campaign, CNN reported.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced sanctions against seven individuals and four entities "that are part of a Russia-linked foreign influence network associated with" accused Russian agent Andrii Derkach, designating them for their involvement in efforts to try to influence the election.

"Russian disinformation campaigns targeting American citizens are a threat to our democracy," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in his own statement. "The United States will continue to aggressively defend the integrity of our election systems and processes."
