Russia bans Boris Johnson over Ukraine sanctions – POLITICO

Russia on Saturday banned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and senior British politicians from entering the country due to sanctions related to the war in Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the British government’s “unprecedented hostile actions” targeting senior Russian officials prompted it to restrict the entry into the country of 13 prominent politicians, including Johnson, Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab, Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss and Defense Secretary Ben. Wallace.

The UK this week imposed a new round of sanctions on 206 Russians in response to a Russian rocket attack on a train station in eastern Ukraine that killed dozens of civilians. The UK also provides civilian and military aid to Ukraine.

Moscow has already imposed a similar ban on US President Joe Biden and senior EU officials.
