Britain announced on Tuesday that it had added 42 more Russian citizens to its travel ban and asset freeze list in connection with Russia’s military occupation of Ukraine.

“Hochenko and Kuznetsov were sent from Moscow to the occupied territory to carry out the Kremlin’s political orders and to support Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plan to illegally annex parts of Ukraine.In a statement, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is the successor to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“We will take strict punitive measures against those who seek to legitimize Putin’s illegal occupation of Ukraine.“, said the head of British diplomacy.
According to London’s own statement, it has so far added more than 1,100 Russian citizens and more than 100 Russian legal entities to the sanctions list.

The British government also wants to prosecute two groups of Syrian nationals following preliminary consultations with the EU. One group, according to London, includes those who have recruited Syrian fighters to fight in Ukraine, while other group members support the “repressive Syrian regime.”
The announcement in London coincided with the European Union’s decision to extend EU sanctions against Russia for another six months until January 2023.
