UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said that the Trump administration will announce new sanctions on Russia on Monday, in retaliation for Moscow’s support of the Assad regime.

“Are there any consequences for Assad’s patrons, Russia and Iran, who continue to protect him?” CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked.

“Russian sanctions will be coming down,” Haley responded, saying Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin will announce those on Monday.

The sanctions will hit “any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use,” she said.
