Russia's central bank is promising to support financial institutions hit by U. S. sanctions as stocks took a tumble on opening in Moscow.
The West is also halting future sales to lucrative Russian economic sectors, with the U. S. announcing plans to block future technology sales to the oil industry and Europe approving an arms embargo.
Europe has a far stronger economic relationship with Russia than the U.
 one of Europe's last banking dynasties is being stripped of its wealth and influence amid accounting irregularities, huge unreported debts, and a police investigation.
The scandal bears the hallmarks of the recent European financial crisis, and the difficulties at Banco Espirito Santo — Portugal's largest bank — sent a shiver through global markets this month as investors feared Europe's closet contained more skeletons.
The family's three holding companies, unable to repay debt built up by the tourism-to-farming-to-health care empire, have sought legal protection from creditors.
The sometimes close connections in southern Europe among banks, politicians and public institutions discourage transparency — a feature exposed by the recent crisis, Barroso noted.
 media reports began documenting financial shortfalls at another two holding companies, which then conceded they also were unable to pay money they owed.
Regulators say Banco Espirito Santo account holders won't lose their money, though investors — including Banco Espirito Santo — who lent money to other businesses controlled by the family may not get all theirs back.
The central bank, the Lisbon stock exchange and Portugal's attorney general are all investigating how Salgado juggled money between the various family businesses and whether he misled regulators and investors.

Days ahead of Congress' five-week summer recess, Senate Democrats' $3.5 billion emergency spending bill designed to help deal with tens of thousands of young migrants crossing the border illegally has yet to draw the necessary support to move forward.
The inclusion of hundreds of millions of dollars to fight Western wildfires and provide aid for Israel's defense hasn't been enough to win over Republicans, who demand legal changes rejected by Democrats to return the young migrants more quickly to Central America.
With polls showing the public paying close attention to the immigration crisis, House Republicans were hoping they could act on their own solution, a slimmed-down, $615 million measure that leaves out the money for wildfires and Israel but includes the contentious policy changes rejected by Senate Democrats.
The University of Minnesota's stadium is getting a grassy makeover in preparation for an international soccer match.
