Illinois Senator Dick Durbin likely won't be able to travel to Russia anymore.
The Senate Majority Whip is among the top officials expected to be named to a retaliatory sanctions list by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
President Barack Obama released a sanctions list Monday that includes seven Russian and four Ukranian officials from holding assets or traveling to the United States after a vote to annex the Ukranian state of Crimea ended with Russia taking over the area.
Putin's list is considered a direct retaliation against those sanctions and his list is meant to mirror Obama's.
Durbin, who co-authored a resolution criticizing Russia's Crimean aggression, told The Daily Beast that he thinks of the list as sort of a badge of honor.
"My Lithuanian-born mother would be proud her son made Vladimir Putin’s American enemies list."
