The United States has imposed sanctions on seven Russian individuals and 17 companies it says are linked to President Vladimir Putin's inner circle.

The White House said the move was a response to Russia's continued illegal intervention in Ukraine.

The announcement comes after the mayor of Kharkiv, which is a city in eastern Ukraine, was shot and critically wounded.
