LONDON, April 28 The United States announced additional sanctions on Russian individuals and businesses on Monday over the crisis in Ukraine, leading to growing fears in commodity markets of possible supply disruptions. While the sanctions from the United States - expected to be followed by additional sanctions from the European Union this week - have not directly targeted Russia's commodity exports, Washington on Monday added Igor Sechin, head of Russia state energy champion Rosneft to the list. Russia is the world's second-largest oil exporter and supplies 30 percent of Europe's natural gas.
