The Trump administration is imposing new sanctions on Russia for its attempts to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On Thursday, the Treasury Department announced sanctions on 24 Russian entities and individuals.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said these sanctions show the Trump administration is "confronting and countering malign Russian cyber activity."

The administration failed to meet a congressionally mandated deadline to impose sanctions at the end of January.
