WASHINGTON  – Options the United States could still take toward Russia amid Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine include a full trade embargo and blocking Russia’s access to international waterways, U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo told CNBC on Monday.

Possible U.S. options remaining on the table also include prohibitions on nickel, uranium and titanium as well as on Russian entities’ crypto assets, CNBC reporter Kayla Tausche said in a post on Twitter, citing an interview with Adeyemo.
