A year behind Russia’s war in Ukraine, Western countries have imposed numerous sanctions to make Russia pay a heavy economic price.

With the continued attacks, the scope of the sanctions was expanded over time, and sanctions were imposed on Russia in many areas such as finance, energy, transportation, media, technology, automobile, sports and trade.

The total number of sanctions imposed on Russia exceeded 14 thousand

According to data from the global sanctions monitoring database, Russia has been subjected to 11,327 new sanctions as of February 22, 2022.
