On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine after the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk requested help to defend them from intensifying Ukrainian attacks. In response, the United States and its allies imposed comprehensive sanctions against Russia that includes airspace closures and restrictive measures targeting numerous Russian officials and entities, media, and financial institutions. Dozens of transnational companies announced their exit from Russia in response to the special military operation.
