Before 1 May 2022, will the United States announce the imposition of sanctions directly on Russian President Vladimir Putin?

The US has imposed a number of sanctions on Russian persons and institutions, but has not imposed sanctions directly on Putin himself (CBS News). The US has sanctioned heads of state in the past (CNN).
As the United States announced the imposition of sanctions directly on Russian President Vladimir Putin just hours after the launch of this question, the closing date would be the same as the launch date. This means that no forecasts submitted would be scored, and the question has thus been voided.
