UK Imposes Export and Import Bans on Russia in Response to Ukraine Invasion

(CTN News) – To commemorate the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the United Kingdom imposed additional sanctions on Moscow, including prohibiting importing iron and steel products and an export ban on every item Russia has used on the battlefield.

Britain has targeted a wave of Russian politicians and companies and frozen their assets over the past year to undermine Moscow’s economy and limit its ability to wage war on its neighbor.

It added that as many as 92 additional people and organizations would be targeted, including friends of Russian President Vladimir Putin, like Nord Stream 2’s manager Matthias Warnig.

Britain announced the globally coordinated sanctions and trade restrictions would target airplane parts, radio equipment, and electronic components before the meeting between Group of Seven leaders and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

“Today, we are penalizing the elites who oversee Putin’s core companies and vowing to prevent the transfer to Russia of every item Country has been detected using on the battlefield,” stated Foreign Secretary James Cleverly.

Executives at the state-owned nuclear power business Rosatom, defense groups, and Russian banks are also on the list of potential victims.

The company claimed, “Rosatom has always, under all circumstances, complied with its international commitments.” We will keep fulfilling our current commitments as long as it is feasible.

Meeting with Zelenskiy, G7 leaders will likely debate more penalties against Russia.
