The USA imposed new sanctions against Russia. 22 people and 83 companies were added to the sanctions list.

The press service of the U.S. Ministry of Finance writes about this.

In particular, the United States imposed sanctions against 14 Russian financial organizations and banks. Among them was the Moscow Credit Bank, which is among the ten largest in Russia. In addition, restrictions were imposed against more than 30 people and companies that Russia uses to circumvent sanctions.

The U.S. State Department also imposed sanctions against the heads of 47 Russian regions and nine ministers. In addition, sanctions were introduced against propagandist Olha Skabeeva.

The White House talked about new economic sanctions. The U.S. will impose a 200 percent tariff on imports of Russian aluminum products from March 10, and on aluminum products from Russian aluminum from April 10.

  • On February 15, the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen presented the official proposal for the tenth package of sanctions against Russia. The European Commission proposes further export bans that will cost the Russian Federation more than €11 billion and deprive its economy of critical technologies and industrial products. We are talking about goods that Russia will not be able to get from other countries: electronics, special vehicles, car parts, spare parts for trucks and airplanes, goods for the construction sector that can be used by the Russian military.
  • The publication Bloomberg wrote that the European Union is considering the possibility of introducing sanctions against the Russian National Welfare Fund. They also want to oblige banks to disclose more information about frozen Russian assets.
