UK sanctions 386 Russian State Duma members

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss announced on Friday that the United Kingdom is imposing sanctions on 386 members of the Russian State Duma "for their support for the Ukrainian breakaway regions of Luhansk and Donetsk." The lawmakers will not be able to travel to the UK, do business with British companies or access their UK assets.

"We're targeting those complicit in Putin's illegal invasion of Ukraine and those who support this barbaric war. We will not let up the pressure and will continue to tighten the screw on the Russian economy through sanctions," Truss said. "Together with our allies, we stand firmly beside our Ukrainian friends. We will continue to support Ukraine with humanitarian aid, defensive weapons and diplomatic work to isolate Russia internationally."
