Both the United States and European Union has imposed sanctions on individuals and entities held responsible for violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. Further sanctions have been implemented by the US and the EU in an attempt to send a message to the Russian government and pressurise them to change their policy on Ukraine and the Crimea.
Russia reacted to the sanctions by imposing an embargo on certain food imports from the EU, US, Australia, Canada and Norway. The Ukraine has also attempted to sanction vessels using Crimean ports.
