Actors Sean Penn and Ben Stiller are among 25 U.S. citizens who have been banned from visiting Russia, the Kremlin announced Monday.
In a statement, the Russian foreign ministry prohibited 25 high-ranking officials, business people and actors from entering Russia “on a permanent basis.” The move comes in retaliation for U.S. President Joe Biden’s sanctions against Moscow, the press release added.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, a member of the EU-U.S. Trade and Technology Council, is also on the list of those sanctioned.
In June, Stiller visited Kyiv and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
