President Joe Biden on Tuesday said it's possible the U.S. would sanction Russian President Vladimir Putin personally if the leader invades Ukraine. Biden, speaking to reporters in Washington, said there would be "enormous consequences worldwide" for Putin if there is a Russian invasion. Earlier Tuesday, U.S. officials said Washington is prepared to impose sanctions and export controls on critical sectors of the Russian economy if Putin invades Ukraine, the Wall Street Journal reported. Officials also said the U.S. is working to mitigate market shocks if Russia withholds energy supplies in retaliation.
