ZURICH – Neutral Switzerland has adopted more European Union sanctions against Russian individuals and entities published on Tuesday in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, the government said on Wednesday.

“Switzerland’s list of sanctions now fully mirrors that of the EU,” it said, adding the individuals sanctioned included further oligarchs and prominent business people whose assets in Switzerland must be frozen as of midday.
