Seven of the athletes on the list - appeared on stage at a pro-war rally organized by Russian President Putin at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow in March.

The list also includes one Ukrainian, football coach Anatoly Tymoshchuk, assistant coach at the Russian football club Zenit St. Petersburg.

The former captain of the Ukrainian national team, he is the country's all-time leading scorer with 144 goals.

In early 2022, the Ukrainian Football Association stripped him of his coaching license and the titles he won because he refused to speak out against the ongoing Russian invasion and remained an assistant coach at Zenit.

The sanctions will last for about ten years and include blocking assets in the territory of Ukraine, limiting trade operations, banning entry and removing all titles and medals awarded to them by the state.
