Russia adds 23 people to UK sanctions list

Russia decided to further extend sanctions against the United Kingdom by adding 23 people to the list of sanctioned British citizens, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

"In connection with the implementation of London's anti-Russian course, within the framework of which the mechanism of personal sanctions is actively applied and comprehensive support is provided to the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev, it was decided to expand the Russian stop-list by including representatives of the military-political establishment, journalistic corps and scientific community of Great Britain (23 people in total)," the ministry stated.

Among the persons sanctioned are the Chief of the Defence Staff Antony Radakin, the Chair of Joint Intelligence Committee Madeleine Alessandri, and the Chair of BAE Systems plc Cressida Hogg. The list also includes several employees of three British political science centers.
