If Barack Obama was thinking of traveling to eastern Ukraine anytime soon, he may want to take another look at his plans. The president was on Tuesday slapped with sanctions banning him from traveling to the region by Ukrainian separatists who want to come under Russia’s rule. The separatist splinter state, which calls itself the Donetsk People’s Republic, also declared sanctions against German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton, and British Prime Minister David Cameron. The statement came after the group asked to be annexed by Russia, following a controversial referendum backing the move and mirroring the path of the southern peninsula of Crimea in March.
