The U.S. and the U.K. will impose a ban on imports of Russian energy Tuesday without the participation of European allies, according to people familiar with the matter. 

The U.S. ban will include Russian oil, liquefied natural gas and coal, according to two people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The decision was made in consultation with European allies, who rely more heavily than the U.S. on Russian energy, another person said.
