Japan Embargoed Russian Gold

On July 5, the Japanese government announced sanctions against Russian gold and several Russian officials, oligarchs, and businesses

Today, the state introduced those sanctions that were discussed at the G7 summit in Germany. From now on, Japan will not import Russian gold and is also cutting off from its service several Russian businessmen, government officials, and even Ukrainian/Belarusian collaborators who support the war. This circle of persons can no longer use the trust and accounting services of Japan.

Personal sanctions were imposed on 57 individuals and 6 legal entities in Russia. The following were retaliated against the Russian deputy PM Dmitry Grigorenko, CEO of the United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slyusar, CEO of Rosgeology Sergei Gorkov, Putin's close friend Sergei Roldugin and others.

Restrictions were imposed on the export of products of 65 Russian and 25 Belarusian machine-building enterprises.

And the best part: sanctions were imposed on 5 Ukrainians who betrayed Ukraine and went over to the side of Russia, helping the Russians establish puppet power in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, and kill Ukrainians: Volodymyr Saldo, Kyrylo Stremousov, Serhii Cherevko, Tatiana Kuzmich, Galina Danylchenko.

We remind you that on May 12, Japan imposed sanctions on Russian banks, and on June 7 — on goods, banks, and enterprises in Russia and Belarus.
