Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and senior White House officials banned from entering Russia

US President Joe Biden has been banned from entering Russia in response to sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine.

Joining the 79-year-old on a Kremlin "stop list" are his secretary of state Antony Blinken, CIA chief William Burns, defence secretary Lloyd Austin, and national security adviser Jake Sullivan.

Senior White House officials make up the bulk of the 13-name roster, which also features Hillary Clinton.

Russia's foreign ministry said it would still maintain official relations with Washington and make high-level contact with those on the list if necessary.

Mr Biden has not visited Russia since 2011, when he was vice president to Barack Obama. His trip to Moscow included talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
