The head of the British Foreign Office, Liz Truss, announced the imposition of sanctions against 65 more individuals and legal entities because of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
This was announced by the press service of the British government.
The new British sanctions target key industries that support Russia's illegal invasion, including Russian Railways and defense company Kronstadt, a major manufacturer of Russian drones.
The Wagner Group, which was reportedly tasked with assassinating President Volodymyr Zelensky, also came under sanctions.
Six other banks, including Alfa Bank, co-founded by oligarchs Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan, who were previously sanctioned, were also subject to restrictions.
Alrosa, the world's largest diamond producer, has also been sanctioned.
Oil tycoon-billionaire and partner of Roman Abramovich Yevgeny Shvidler, Tinkoff Bank founder Oleg Tinkov, Herman Gref, CEO of Russia's largest bank Sberbank, and Polina Kovaleva, stepdaughter of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who owns about 4 million pounds worth of real estate in London, were also sanctioned.
Galina Danilchenko, the Russian-appointed "mayor" of Melitopol, was also subject to sanctions - the first time that restrictions have been imposed on a person for cooperating with Russian occupation troops.
OPFL deputy Oleg Voloshin and ex-regionalist Vladimir Sivkovich were also under sanctions.
