The German investigative nonprofit Correctiv just launched a tracker to monitor worldwide sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. It’s available in English and German and updated several times a day.

“This creates transparency around the most important tool the West has in the current crisis,” Justus von Daniels, editor-in-chief of Correctiv, told me.

Data for the Sanctions Tracker comes from the Open Sanctions database. Correctiv is filtering it for sanctions against Russian targets from 2014 to the present.

Users can view sanctions by country and date and track how many there are against Russian people, companies, and other individual targets.

The Technology and Social Change Project at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center is “tracking moves by major technology companies and governments to limit the flow of misinformation. This includes state sponsored misinformation and content removed at the behest of governments, as people worldwide flock to social media to receive updates of the rapidly unfolding violence.” That project, updated daily, is here.
