In total, 24 Russians and 14 entities were put on the list, in a move that represents the latest tough measures from Washington against Moscow.

The list of the “specially designated nationals” now includes Chairperson of the Council of the Federation Committee on Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, head of the National Guard Service (Rosgvardiya) Viktor Zolotov, and ex-FSB head Nikolay Patrushev have also made it to the list.

The US Treasury also targeted big guns as billionaire and aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska. Deripaska is the founder and owner of one of the largest Russian industrial groups, Basic Element. Until 2018, he served as the president of En+ Group.
Deripaska’s main companies, such as Basic Element, En+ Group, Rusal, and Russian Machines are included on the list.
