More sanctions on Putin's Russia

Yesterday Britain imposed sweeping new sanctions on Russia to starve Putin’s war machine.

  • Britain has been a leading voice calling for international action throughout the war in Ukraine and we have been leading the way in imposing harsh sanctions on Putin’s regime. 
  • Following the further evidence of war crimes and continued aggression by Russian forces in Ukraine, the UK government has now announced a fifth package of measures cutting off key sectors of the Russian economy, ending all imports of Russian coal and oil by the end of 2022 and a full asset freeze on Russia’s largest bank.
  • The aim is to rally our international allies in support of Ukraine and the latest wave of measures will sanction yet more individuals and businesses, decimating Putin’s war machine.
