Morgan Freeman, 84, has been included on a list of 963 Americans permanently banned from Russia. Joining Morgan on the “black list” is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and several deceased people including senator John McCain, lawyer Harry Reid and Orrin Hatch.
President Joe Biden and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken were already on the list.
The president’s son, Hunter Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton have also been added.
Former president Donald Trump was not included in the list.
