Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The other targets include two advisors to President Putin, Vladislav Surkov and Sergey Glazyev, Russian Upper Parliament head Valentina Matviyenko, MP Leonid Slutsky, who chairs the committee on Russian relations with ethnic Russians overseas, constitutional law professor Andrey Klishas, and MP Yelina Mizulina.

Mizulina is perhaps the craziest inclusion, as she not only had nothing to do with the Ukraine situation but isn't even a member of the ruling party. Her sole claim to fame is backing the anti-gay legislation in Russia ahead of the Winter Olympics and her inclusion was seemingly just the first chance the administration had to stick it to her for that.
