“The Treasury Department has consistently warned that companies will face significant consequences for providing material support to Russia’s war effort, and the U.S. is imposing them (sanctions) on nearly 300 targets today,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement.

New sanctions were also imposed on three people in connection with the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the US State Department announced. Nearly 200 sanctioned entities are listed by the Treasury Department, while the State Department has designated more than 80, Reuters reported.

Sanctions are also directed against, for example, companies associated with the Russian natural gas extraction project and the production of liquefied natural gas LNG 2 in the Arctic. They were also imposed on the Russian airline Pobeda, which is the low-cost division of Aeroflot, writes Reuters with reference to the US Department of Finance.
