In June 2023, the European Union introduced the 11th package of anti-Russian sanctions. It follows from the document that new and used electric cars, hybrids and gasoline cars with an engine capacity of more than 1.9 liters were banned from delivery to Russia. The ban also applies to the supply of certain types of automotive components.
The Russian authorities consider Western sanctions illegal. The Kremlin warned that any restrictions against Russia would hit the global economy and would only lead to an increase in trends towards a global economic crisis.
In August, Japan also imposed a ban on the export of cars with engines over 1.9 liters to Russia. In addition, hybrid cars and electric vehicles, railway locomotives and trains, tires for large-sized vehicles, steel, zinc, lead and some other products were banned.
