The first round of US sanctions against Russia technically came last week in the form of a travel ban against people on a certain list, though since the list didn’t exist and no one was on it, today’s sanctions are the first practical ones.Today’s move involves seizing the assets of seven Russians, who Obama accused of “undermining” Ukrainian sovereignty. In reality, the seven are middling political officials and in some cases had literally no ties to the Ukraine situation.
Of the seven, the only one likely familiar to anyone who is not deeply studious of the Russian political situation is Dmitry Rogozin, the former Russian Ambassador to NATO. Rogozin is now a Deputy Prime Minister.
The other targets include two advisors to President Putin, Vladislav Surkov and Sergey Glazyev, Russian Upper Parliament head Valentina Matviyenko, MP Leonid Slutsky, who chairs the committee on Russian relations with ethnic Russians overseas, constitutional law professor Andrey Klishas, and MP Yelina Mizulina.
