WASHINGTON -- The U.S. has stepped up the pressure on China and India for refusing to join Western sanctions against Moscow, threatening to punish businesses that provide service to Russian airlines flying to Beijing, Delhi and elsewhere.  

The Commerce Department last week updated a list of 153 planes operated by Russian and Belarusian companies -- nearly all made by Boeing -- that flew into those two countries without authorization from the U.S. Washington says the flights violate sanctions restricting exports of American technology.
