Russia bans 154 British House of Lords members

Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated on Tuesday that Moscow has decided to put travel restrictions on 154 members of the British House of Lords in retaliation for the UK government's sanctions against Russian individuals and entities back in March.

According to the ministry, the sanctioned individuals, including President of the House of Lords John Francis McFall, played a significant role in Russia's political isolation and economic ruin. In addition to that, the ministry explained they utilized their power to incite anti-Russian hysteria in the United Kingdom.
