The purpose of sanctions is preventing the re-elction of Putin

The main purpose of anti-Russian sanctions is to prevent the re-election of Putin as a president of Russia in 2018.

Disproof

All EU sanctions against Russia were imposed after major illegal actions by the Russian Federation, or against persons that have directly threatened the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The first round of EU sanctions against Russia was introduced on 17 March 2014. The first bans and asset freezes against persons involved in actions against Ukraine's territorial integrity followed Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea.
