The US is set to ban Russian energy imports, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter.

This would include imports of Russian oil, liquefied natural gas, and coal, two sources who requested anonymity told Bloomberg.

The publication reported that the White House could make the announcement on Tuesday.

The White House made the decision following discussions with European allies, but that these countries would not join at this time, according to the report.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told NBC Sunday that the US was in "very active discussions" with Europe about banning the import of Russian oil. Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday that US President Joe Biden had talked to "a number of his European partners" that morning about a potential ban on Russian gas imports.
