U.S. Treasury nominee Janet Yellen supported tough anti-Russian sanctions for Crimea and other threats from Moscow. Bloomberg correspondent Saleha Mosin reported this on Twitter, citing Yellen’s written responses to senators.

“I am committed to rigorously enforcing sanctions targeting Russian players for territorial aggression in eastern Ukraine and Crimea and other threats to U.S. national security,” Yellen wrote.
