The United States, aided by its G7 partners, has imposed new sanctions on Russia on the day marking the one-year anniversary of the war in Ukraine.

The purpose of the sanctions is to undermine Russia’s ability to maintain the war in Ukraine. Over 200 individuals and organizations, that have ties to Russia’s defense ministry, were the targets of the sanctions.

The #UnitedStates has expanded sanctions against #Russia. About 200 individuals and legal entities from the Russian Federation will fall under the restrictions.

On March 10, the United States will impose a 200% import duty on aluminum and aluminum products from Russia.
