(VOVWORLD) - The Biden administration on Friday announced fresh sanctions on more than 300 Russian individuals and entities which are related to the conflict with Ukraine and halted the export of a wide range of consumer goods to Russia.

The blacklisted companies include 69 Russian entities, one from Armenia and one from Kyrgyzstan, added to the Department of Commerce’s "Entity List", primarily for supporting Russia's military and defense sectors, making it even harder to ship any goods to them.

The Department of the Treasury imposed sanctions on 22 individuals and 104 entities, while the Department of State identified as blocked property almost 200 individuals, entities, vessels, and aircraft.

Since Russia launched its special military operation in Ukraine last February, the US and 37 other countries have imposed unprecedented sanctions and export controls on Moscow.
