The new sanctions list includes politicians, industrial executives and trade officials who are all banned from entering Russia.
In June Meet the Parents star Stiller visited President Volodymy Zelensky criticising Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.

Penn visited the town of Bucha with President Zelenksy where Russian troops killed hundreds of Ukrainian civilians and dumped them into a mass grave.
