The Russian Federation has released a list of 963 Americans banned from entering its country.

The list which was released on Saturday included the names of top American Citizens.

Reacting to the recent support Ukraine is getting from the United States, the Kremlin released the list with names banned permanently from coming into the country.

In a statement released by Russia’s Foreign ministry, the Kremlin stated that the people on the list had no good intentions for the country and “incite Russophobia”.

The statement added that “Russian counter-sanctions are forced and aimed at forcing the ruling American regime… to change its behaviour, recognising new geopolitical realities”.

Noticeable names on the list include secretary of state Antony Blinken, CIA chief William Burns, defence secretary Lloyd Austin, and Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser, along with Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg and Morgan Freeman.
