Total blocking sanctions on Russia’s largest financial institution, Sberbank, and Russia’s largest private bank, Alfa Bank. This action will freeze all assets of Sberbank and Alfa Bank that are in contact with the U.S. financial system and prohibit Americans from doing business with them. Sberbank holds nearly one-third of the assets of the Russian banking sector and is systemically critical to the Russian economy. Alfa Bank is Russia’s largest privately owned financial institution and Russia’s fourth largest financial institution overall.
Total blocking sanctions on Russian elites and their family members, including sanctions on: President Putin’s adult children, Foreign Minister Lavrov’s wife and daughter, and members of Russia’s Security Council, including former Russian President and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. These individuals have enriched themselves at the expense of the Russian people. Some of them are responsible for providing the support necessary to prop up Putin’s war against Ukraine. This action isolates them from the U.S. financial system and freezes any assets they have in the United States.

Washington, Jan 23 (EFE) – The United States on Sunday recommended its citizens not to travel to Russia in view of the current tension with Ukraine, just after making the same recommendation for that country and ordering the families of its diplomatic staff to leave it.
In a statement, the State Department places Russia at level 4 of its travel recommendations, that is, it recommends its citizens not to travel to that country and among the reasons it gives is that there is “harassment” against them.
The recommendation comes shortly after the one issued in the same sense for Ukraine. In this case, moreover, the State Department has ordered the families of its embassy workers to leave Ukraine and has recommended the departure of non-essential personnel in view of the “threat” of military action by Russia.
In its statement on Russia, among the reasons given by the State Department for asking its citizens not to go to that country is the tension with Ukraine but also the possibility of Americans being subjected to “harassment”, including by “Russian government security officials”.
