How the World Is Paying for Putin's War in Ukraine

Russia is still taking in billions from sales of oil, gas and other commodities

In early March, as the US and its allies unleashed a wave of sanctions on Russia, President Joe Biden stood in the White House and said they wanted to deal a “powerful blow to Putin’s war machine.”
