Study up on the MAGNITSKY ACT our Congress imposed on corrupt Russian MAFIA billionaires and Russian banks under the control of Putin in response to the Putin-ordered arrest, torture, and murder of a 39-year-old Russian forensics economist turned whistleblower for widespread corruption at the highest levels of Russia's government and Putin's inner circle. Read the details of the $249 MILLION corruption case built up by U.S. Attorney for New York Preet Bharara and New York's Attorney General against the Russian-owned New York holding company named PREVEZON, headed by Denis Katsyv, the son of a Putin insider in Moscow Pytor Katsyv who is also a long-time contact for media mogul Donald Trump, Mr. "I don't have any business dealings with Russia" corrupt to the core Trump. So the MAGNITSKY ACT sanctions are in place upon oligarchical MAFIA figures in Putin's inner circle for civil rights violations that are ongoing. And there were heavy-duty sanctions placed upon these high-level corrupt Putin-connected Russian officials that would prevent these money-laundering, tax theft/tax fraud-committing criminal billionaires from conducting business in Europe or in the U.S. until the 2014 Putin-ordered invasion of Ukraine is reversed and the port city of Crimea is returned to its home country. The other sanctions in place are penalties for the ACTS OF WAR committed against the United States (aided and abetted by KOMPOMAT Donald Trump, the Russian puppet who thinks Putin is a father figure like his corrupt dad Fred Trump and by the Trump campaign as well as some of the powers-abusing criminally partisan money-grubbing Republicans in Congress).
A must-read is by CIA counterespionage expert Malcolm Nance (2018), "The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West."
Until every single planted Russian operative trained to live like Americans in order to infiltrate for nefarious reasons is exposed, every Russian MAFIA figure impacting our democratic processes has been brought to justice, and the online (cyber warfare) hacks by Russia have been eliminated, there should be sanctions on Russia's corrupt richest inner circle of government official billionaires under Putin's control.

US sanctions on Russia don't do much. Europe still have to buy Russian oil and natural gas. The USA has put sanctions on Iran, countries will still buy Iranian oil.

After the US sponsored a coup in Ukraine to replace the pro-Russian government with a pro-western government, the Russian factions fled into Crimea, and Russia responded by sending in their military to annex Crimea.
That's when the US started sanctioning Russia. Americans act like it was purely the Russians just being crazy and taking Crimea, but there was actually a reason for it. The Crimeans are largely pro-Russian and voted to join Russia in a referendum.
Ukraine used to be part of the USSR, so it shouldn't be surprising that there is a large pro-Russian faction in the Ukraine.
Crimea is tiny. It's like 4% the size of Texas. It's insane that the US has been sanctioning Russia for so long for annexing Crimea when the Crimeans want to and voted to join Russia, and it was in direct response to a coup sponsored by the US and other western powers.
The US just wants an excuse to continue screwing over Russia.
The US should be happy that Russia took the pro-Russians out of Ukraine. Now the west can pretty much takeover the rest of the Ukraine easily. It has a pro-western government now and most the pro-Russian faction is in Russia.

Liberals love foreign wars, since they never serve in the military.

Not as long as they're cyber attacking us and trying to take over Ukraine. Nice try, though.
