Russia Ukraine News LIVE Updates: US, EU, UK agree new financial sanctions against Russia over Ukraine invasion, block SWIFT - The Economic Times

The United States, European Union and United Kingdom agreed to put in place crippling sanctions on the Russian financial sector, including a block on its access to the global financial system and, for the first time, restrictions on its central bank in retaliation for its invasion of Ukraine. The measures were announced jointly as part of a new round of financial sanctions meant to hold Russia to account and collectively ensure that this war is a strategic failure for (Russian President Vladimir) Putin. The central bank restrictions target the more than $600 billion in reserves that the Kremlin has at its disposal, meant to limit Russia's ability to support the ruble amid tightening Western sanctions.
