Most of the victims are in technology fields such as aerospace and electronics, but there are also penalties against members of the Navy.

Micron has attracted the attention of technology companies, especially the largest chipmaker in Russia and the largest in the world. According to the government, this is “50% of exports of Russian microelectronic goods”.

These measures are intended to affect the ways in which Moscow has found ways to circumvent previous sanctions used by both the United States, the European Union and the United Kingdom.

The Russians have been subjected to severe punishment since the attack on Ukraine began on February 24. These actions affect the business and industrial sector, politicians and financial institutions and are aimed at isolating Russia to end the war.

Robert Hebeck, German Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Climate Change, said the EU was also reviewing more sanctions against Moscow and that “the last set of sanctions was not the last.”

Moscow announced on Thursday that European leaders had been barred from entering Russia’s territory in response to a similar decision by EU countries. The Kremlin has already announced a similar decision against Joe Biden. .
