List of unfriendly countries


August 14, 2022

List of unfriendly countries is a list of countries that the Russian government considers "unfriendly" to Russia. The list was first published in May 2021 and featured only two countries – the United States of America and the Czech Republic. The list was expanded to 48 countries in February 2022 after those countries tightened sanctions against Russia following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. All 27 member states of the European Union are on the list. On July 24, 2022, the Bahamas and the British dependencies of Guernsey and the Isle of Man were also added to the list.Countries added to the list of enemy countries are subject to certain restrictions related to their relations with Russia, including trade and currency restrictions and recruitment limits on diplomatic missions of the listed countries in Russia.

Note: The original list is shorter because it refers to the European Union collectively as "EU countries".
