In Rahman Ravelli’s latest Sanctions Monitor update, Angelika Hellweger details the UK sanctions imposed on those involved with Russia’s referendums in Ukraine.
Voters in four non-government-controlled provinces of southern and eastern Ukraine supposedly agreed to their regions joining Russia, according to Russian referendums regarded as shams by Ukraine and its Western partners.
As a reaction to the referendums, the UK announced a new package of sanctions. G7 leaders condemned the referendums and the European Union and Canada plan to follow the UK and announce plans to impose new sanctions packages.
The details of the UK’s latest sanctions package are as follows:
So far, the UK has sanctioned over 1,200 individuals and more than 120 entities, including over 120 oligarchs with an estimated combined global net worth of at least £130 billion.
