The United States took sweeping actions on the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and imposed sanctions on Russian officials, companies, and top propagandists, according to the US Department of State.

The US Department of State approved financial sanctions against the Russian Federation governors who have among their duties the conscription of Russian citizens to fight in Ukraine. The list of sanctioned governors and regional head consists of 47 individuals.
