Those responsible for Russia's military activities, political decisions, disinformation, forced adoption of children, and the development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) targeting Ukrainian civilians and infrastructure have been banned from travel and their assets frozen.

Many government officials, including members of the Russian Federation Council, 19 deputy ministers, heads of various federal institutions, and 4 Duma deputies were on the sanctions list.

Russian military leaders and two commanders of the Wagner group stationed in Ukraine, as well as companies that manufacture missiles, UAVs, aircraft, military vehicles, warships or control systems and supply them to the Russian Armed Forces, were also sanctioned.

Prosecutors in illegally annexed regions of Ukraine were also sanctioned.

Senior executives and presenters in major television channels and media groups in Russia were also included in the sanctions list.

Sanctions were also imposed on 4 Iranian citizens who took part in the preparation and supply of UAVs used by Russia against Ukraine.

Economic actors in sectors that financially support Russia were also listed.

Alfa-Bank, Rosbank and Tinkoff Bank, Russian Federation National Wealth Fund and Russian National Reinsurance Company were among the institutions that were sanctioned.

Thus, the number of people and 205 organizations that the EU imposed restrictive measures on the grounds that they took actions threatening Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence became 1473.

Within the scope of the package, new export restrictions were imposed on dual-use and high-tech products that contribute to Russia's military and technological development.

In this context, electronic components used in various Russian weapon systems such as UAVs, missiles, helicopters, as well as certain rare earth elements and thermal cameras were banned.

An additional export ban was imposed on heavy vehicles and their spare parts, various special vehicles, construction vehicles such as trailers, generators, binoculars, compass, forklifts, cranes, electronics, machinery parts, pumps, metalworking machines and products used in the aviation industry.

Within the scope of the package, an import ban was applied for some products such as bitumen, asphalt and synthetic rubber, which provide high income to Russia.

Russian citizens are prohibited from working in the management of critical infrastructure companies of EU countries.

As part of the package, a third country shipping company suspected of helping to circumvent sanctions on Russia's oil exports was also included in the list.

The package introduced new reporting obligations to member states for frozen assets of the Central Bank of Russia.
