London: The United Kingdom is imposing sanctions against 386 Russian lawmakers who supported recognition of Donbas republics, the Foreign Office said on Friday.

“Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has today (Friday 11 March) sanctioned 386 members of the Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, for their support for the Ukrainian breakaway regions of Luhansk and Donetsk.

The new sanctions will ban those listed from travelling to the UK, accessing assets held within the UK and doing business here,” the foreign office said in a statement.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the introduction of sanctions against Russia by the member countries of the alliance meant support for Ukraine in the current situation, but stressed that these measures had an impact on everyone.

“No one wants these sanctions. Of course, these sanctions are costly for the whole world, including for those countries which are imposing the sanctions, but at the same time we have to react, as we see Russia is blatantly violating international law, invading in a brutal way a sovereign independent state of Ukraine, and 140 nations at the UN condemn that strongly.

NATO and NATO allies have imposed serious sanctions to put maximum pressure on Russia. That increases the likelihood for them at some stage accepting that they have to sit down at the negotiating table,” Stoltenberg said.
