Sanctions significantly reduce Russia’s ability to murder innocent Ukrainians and produce weapons.
The EU has sanctioned 108 entities and 1212 individuals. Sanctions on individuals consist of travel bans and asset freezes.
Asset freezes mean that all accounts belonging to the listed persons and entities in EU banks are frozen.
This ensures that their money can no longer be used to support the Russian regime nor can they try to find a safe haven in the EU.
The list includes:
Russia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov
oligarchs linked to the Kremlin
351 members of the Russian State Duma
members of the National Security Council
local politicians such as the mayor of Moscow
high-ranking officials and military personnel
propagandists and disinformation actors
individuals responsible for the atrocities committed in Bucha and Mariupol
individuals involved the recruitment of Syrian mercenaries to fight in Ukraine
selected family members of some of the abovementioned individuals.
