The U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions on Monday against Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the Russian oligarch known as “Putin’s Chef,” for attempting to influence the 2018 U.S. election, blocking Prigozhin’s yacht and private jets from entering the U.S. The Treasury previously sanctioned Prigozhin, one of the wealthiest men in Russia and a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the Internet Research Agency, the St. Petersburg-based internet troll farm, for their 2016 election meddling campaign. It is now adding additional sanctions for attempted meddling in the 2018 election.
