T

he UK Government has announced a swathe of new sanctions against those close to the Kremlin, including politicians, oligarchs, propagandists, and companies.

A total of more than 370 individuals and entities were hit on Tuesday, according to the Foreign Office, bringing the total number of sanctions listed to more than 1,000 since the invasion of Ukraine began.

New rules brought in by the Economic Crime Act mean allow sanctions applied by allies to be quickly mirrored in the UK, before the Government later applies its own systems to the measures.

Individuals facing sanctions will have their assets in the UK frozen – meaning no UK citizen or company can do business with them – and they are also banned from travelling to or from the UK.

Here are some of those hit by the latest round of measures.
