Switzerland has joined the 14th package of European sanctions against Russia in response to Russia's ongoing military aggression against Ukraine, according to the Swiss government.

On June 24, the EU adopted new measures against Russia as part of the fourteenth package of sanctions. For its part, Switzerland imposes sanctions within its jurisdiction on another 69 individuals and 86 legal entities.

The new sanctions target entrepreneurs, propagandists, members of the armed forces and judiciary, those responsible for the deportation of Ukrainian children, and FSB officers.

The newly sanctioned entities include, among others, companies operating in the Russian defense sector, as well as companies in the financial and trade sectors that are actively involved in circumventing sanctions.

In total, more than 2,200 individuals and legal entities were included in the sanctions lists.

Sanctions against Russia

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has already been subjected to 14 sets of sanctions by the European Union for the war it started in Ukraine.

At the end of June, another package of sanctions was adopted, affecting Russian propagandists, actors, singers, the mother of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, and members of the Russian FSB intelligence service.
