The NSDC on Oct. 1 adopted a decision to introduce new packages of sanctions against individuals and legal entities for supporting Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The sanctions were introduced “against significant Russian individuals and companies who did not have the courage to speak out in defense of humanity and international law, or who in one way or another are involved in aggressive steps against Ukraine and the community of democratic nations.”

The list adopted by the NSDC includes more than 3,600 individuals and companies. In particular, it includes:

  • children and relatives of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and his close entourage;
  • representatives of the regional elites and authorities of Russia;
  • oligarchs and their close entourage;
  • actors and propagandists, including citizens of Ukraine;
  • collaborators who defected to the enemy;
  • top officials of state corporations;
  • senior commanders of the Russian armed forces;
  • representatives of the Russian occupation authorities in parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, and in Crimea, and the leaders of illegal armed formations operating in the occupied territory of Ukraine.

Ukraine also imposed sanctions against foreign citizens, or “international observers,” who participated in the holding of sham referendums in the Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine.
