15. Mostly symbolic

Really more of warning shot. There was a lot more we could do but these are watered down to serve more as warning. The sanctions only target new debt issuance which Russia does not rely that heavily on international investors for new issuance of government bonds. Also no additional sanction on the pipeline with Germany.

We've been sanctioning Russia since 2014 with really minimal results to show for it. They still do whatever they want.
