Japan imposes sanctions on 15 Russians, 9 entities

The Japanese Foreign Ministry announced on Friday that 15 Russian individuals and nine additional businesses had been sanctioned as a result of the military action in Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is among those sanctioned, as are four deputy defence ministers: Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, Aleksey Krivoruchko, Timur Ivanov, and Dmitry Bulgakov.

Russian defence companies such as Rosoboronexport, Russian Helicopters, and the United Aircraft Corporation were also damaged by the Japanese sanctions.

On February 24, Russia began a military intervention in Ukraine to help the people’s republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

The operation has been fiercely criticised by Western countries, which have labelled it an invasion and imposed heavy penalties on Russia. (ANI/Sputnik)
