Cracking down on Putin's allies

The UK government has confirmed that from today, individuals and businesses linked to Putin’s regime will be blocked from accessing UK legal expertise, as we continue to crack down on Russia’s war machine. 

  • The UK legal system underpins many international contracts – we must ensure that individuals and businesses linked to the Russian state do not benefit from our legal expertise. 
  • That is why the UK government is strengthening British sanctions approach and blocking Russia from accessing UK legal advice. From today, UK lawyers will be prevented from advising on lending decisions to Russian companies, or on deals that could bolster the nation’s war chest. 
  • We must continue to crack down on Russia’s war machine and ratchet up economic pressure, making it harder for Putin to inflict suffering on the innocent people of Ukraine.
