Britain announces additional sanctions against Russia… “Complete condemnation of the illegal annexation of Ukraine’s territory”


The British government announced additional sanctions against Russia for annexing the occupied territories of Ukraine.

According to the Guardian on the 30th (local time), the British Foreign Ministry announced on the same day that Russia’s “illegal” merger measures would restrict Russia’s access to major British commercial and trading services and ban exports of about 700 items important to manufacturing production to Russia.

British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said in a statement that “the UK fully condemns Putin’s announcement of an illegal annexation of Ukraine’s territories.”

“We will never admit the results of this false referendum and annexation of Ukraine’s territory,” he said. He explained that this was the reason for cooperating with international partners through sanctions against Russia.

“What is happening in Ukraine is important to all of us. “The UK will do everything it can to help them fight for freedom.”

Cleverly added that the new sanctions are a protest against Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s four regions: Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporiza and Kherson.

On the same day, on Twitter, he summoned Russian Ambassador to Britain Andrei Kelin and said, “I have made the strongest protest against President Vladimir Putin’s announcement of the illegal annexation of Ukraine’s territory.”

On the same day, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a ceremony at the Kremlin Palace to mark the start of the process of annexing parts of Ukraine to Russia. He signed a treaty of annexation with the four occupied territories in Ukraine.

In addition to the UK, the US announced sanctions against 278 members of the Russian legislature.
