Foreign Ministry Statement on personal sanctions on UK citizens in the media and the defence lobby

In response to the British government’s anti-Russia actions to impose personal sanctions on our country’s leading journalists and heads of defence companies, Russia has included senior executives and correspondents from a number of major British media, as well as representatives of the command of the armed forces, the defence industry, and the UK defence lobby on the Russian “stop list.”

The British journalists included in the list are involved in the deliberate dissemination of false and one-sided information about Russia and the developments in Ukraine and Donbass. Their biased assessments contribute to fueling Russophobia in British society.

Individuals associated with the UK defence complex are involved in making decisions on weapons supplies to Ukraine. The weapons are used by local punishers and Nazi units to kill civilians and to destroy civilian infrastructure.

The following is a list of British subjects who are no longer allowed entry into the Russian Federation.
