The sanctions are primarily against the Governors of various US states, the total number of Governors targeted is 33. The sanctions also target the daughters of Nancy Pelosi and some members of congress, including Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell. Five Leidos executives are also included in the package, due to the company’s electronic surveillance planes being used to collect data on Russian military activity in and around Ukraine. The CEO of Desert Tech, a firearm manufacturer whose weapons have been sent to Ukraine, was also included. These sanctions come a week after the US Treasury department implemented sanctions on 22 individuals and entities it accused of being involved with a “global sanctions evasion network supporting Russia’s military-industrial complex.”
