Something to bear in mind and realise is a fact that is not fiction and fake news
Nobody is buying products or services from Russia, they don’t produce anything but oil, gas and other natural resources. They export almost nothing they make whether physical or technological.
That makes it kind of hard for sanctions to affect them, as the only leverage the west would have over them is not buying their gas but that’s kind of hard for Germany and some other EU countries to avoid right now.
Putting sanctions on NSO Group probably won’t hurt them too much since they don’t make deals out in the open, but it is probably intended more as a warning to other companies in that industry to be careful who you do deals with. …… DS999
The best of companies/entities in that industry are always extremely careful of whom they do deals with …… and the real money/wealth to made is in the selling of products and services to the likes of a Russia or NSO and not in the buying of them from them.
However, as you rightly say, putting pathetic sanctions on such parties as can render one catastrophically vulnerable to exploitation via their products and services is as effective as a warning to others in such fields as is the pain inflicted from a feather blow.
And aint that the gospel truth ‽ .

amanfromMars  …… asks for more raw intelligence information on https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/feds-arrest-primary-steele-dossier-source-durham-investigation-heats
saying he had been tasked to gather “raw intelligence”
Please more fully explain the exact nature of such gatherings. Are they live observations or still virtual inventions born and borne personally and privately of malice or benefit/progress or stagnation and perverse corrupt petrification aiding and abetting the furthering and fathering of constant terrorisation‽ .
Such a clarification will be more than just universally helpful and most illuminating/almightily enlightening, for it is not possible to lead anywhere farther/deeper/higher without acknowledging and accepting the answers supplied, for of course there can be many, with some more or less priceless beyond common worth, such be the AWEsome Effect with Invaluable Offerings from Novel Free State Suppliers …….

You have to admit that does sort of have the JEDI Product somewhat overshadowed and worthy only of redundant activities safeguarding its superseded programs/raison d’être.
