The Milan trio have been informed they will no longer be considered for selection by coach Carlos Alberto Parreira.
The Brazil chief was upset the troika were not released by the Serie A champions for last month's friendly against Haiti.
Bayern Munich pair Ze Roberto and Lucio are currently suffering the same punishment for missing the benefit game.
But Real Madrid striker Ronaldo has no sympathy for his compatriots' plight, as he feels they should have pressed their clubs on the matter.
"Players must use an active behaviour with the clubs, otherwise they will never allow you to leave," said Ronaldo.
"In my case, all my clubs allowed me to play with my national team and I've never had problems.
"The Brazilian federation's punishment is also a way to keep the pride in wearing the Selecao jersey.
"Players haven't insisted enough with their clubs to positively answer that call-up."
