More action on sanctions against Russia
New figures show Britain has frozen more than £48 billion in Russian assets alongside our allies, as part of the effort to de-fund Putin’s war machine and bring a fair peace in Ukraine.
- The Conservative government, with strong cross-party support from most of the political spectrum, is determined to hold Russia to account for its unprovoked war of aggression against Ukraine and ensure Putin’s barbaric venture ends in failure.
- New figures show that, alongside our allies in the Russian Elites Proxies and Oligarchs Task Force, we have blocked or frozen more than £48 billion worth of Russian assets, putting unprecedented financial pressure on Putin and his cronies.
- Together we stand united in defending global democracy and fighting against authoritarianism.
