UK imposes new sanctions against Russian officials

United Kingdom Foreign Secretary James Cleverly announced on Wednesday an extension to the country's Russia sanctions list. The new 22 designations include Russian officials believed to be involved in the promotion of conscripting citizens to fight.

Following the decision to extend sanctions, Cleverly said: "Today we have sanctioned individuals who have enforced this conscription, sending thousands of Russian citizens to fight in Putin's illegal and abhorrent war."

Among those listed is Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov (pictured), who manages Russia's arms and weaponry, and Arkady Gostev, director of the Federal Penitentiary Service, who approved the recruitment of prisoners in the conflict.
