United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley says the U.S. will impose new sanctions on Russia — after the deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria.
In an interview today, Haley said the sanctions are designed to hit Russia for their support of the Assad government.
The ambassador added all allies of America know the U.S. sent a strong message, and the hope is that they listen.
Haley went on to say Russia is continuing to be involved with the “wrong actors” adding U.S. – Russia relations are “very strained.”
