More than 30 countries, including the U.S., Japan and members of the European Union, have imposed far-reaching economic sanctions against Russia in response to the war in Ukraine.

Major Russian banks have been excluded from the SWIFT system, and of the Russian central bank’s $640 billion foreign exchange reserve, the roughly $300 billion in reserves held or managed as dollars, euros or yen by the central banks of the aforementioned countries have been frozen. Countries have also moved to limit as much as possible imports of Russian oil, gas and coal and revoked Russia’s most-favored nation trade status.
