The USA announced the new sanctions package to be applied to Russia. In the statement made by the US Treasury Department, it was stated that more than 500 new sanctions covering financial and military institutions will be imposed on Russia due to the invasion of Ukraine and the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

The sanctions, which also include measures against the officials who played a role in Navalny’s imprisonment, include Russia’s card payment system Mir and approximately 100 companies and individuals that will be subject to export restrictions. In addition, US sanctions will also be applied to companies that develop Russia’s future energy production and cooperate with Iran on unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as entities linked to businesses that send supplies to the Russian military.

US President Joe Biden said in his statement: “New sanctions will make Russian President Vladimir Putin pay an even heavier price for his aggression abroad and pressure at home. “If Putin does not pay the price for his death and destruction, it will continue,” he said.

With the latest package announced by the USA, the number of sanctioned organizations has exceeded 4 thousand.

EU ALSO ANNOUNCED ITS 13TH SANCTIONS PACKAGE FOR RUSSIA
European Union (EU) High Representative for Foreign Affairs and European Commission Vice President Josep Borrell also announced the sanctions package, which includes 200 companies and individuals accused of helping Russia procure weapons and being involved in the kidnapping of Ukrainian children. “We remain committed to helping Ukraine win the fight in self-defense,” Borrell said.
