Taking Additional Sweeping Measures Against Russia

The United States is imposing sanctions today on over 250 individuals and entities in connection with Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.  The Department of State is imposing sanctions on over 100 entities and individuals, including those engaged in sanctions evasion, furthering Russia’s ability to wage its war against Ukraine, and bolstering Russia’s future energy production and export capacity.  As part of this action, we are also designating entities involved in the proliferation of military equipment and munitions from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to Russia.

Concurrently, the Department of the Treasury is imposing sanctions on over 150 individuals and entities, including multiple networks used by Russia to circumvent sanctions, numerous third-country suppliers to Russia’s military-industrial base, and additional Russian financial institutions.

The United States and its allies and partners are united in our continued support of Ukraine in the face of Russia’s unprovoked, unjustified, and illegal war.  We will continue to use the tools at our disposal to promote accountability for Russia’s crimes in Ukraine and those who finance and support Russia’s war machine.

The Department of State and the Department of the Treasury sanctions were taken pursuant to Executive Order 14024  “Blocking Property With Respect To Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation.”  For more information on today’s actions, please see the Department of State’s fact sheet and the Department of the Treasury’s press release.
