Madrid, August 10. (Europa Press) –
The Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday announced a ban on the entry of many citizens of the United Kingdom into the country from London to Moscow in response to restrictions imposed between 2020 and 2021.
“In response to the hostile actions of the British authorities and based on the principle of reciprocity, the Russian side has decided to impose personal sanctions against a proportionate number of British representatives who are closely involved in anti-Russian activities,” he shared in a statement. .
In this sense, it has been argued that under “wild and absurd pretexts”, the United Kingdom launched “baseless attacks with the clear intention of carrying out destructive activities against Russia”.
“After leaving the European Union, the United Kingdom further intensified the manufacture of sanctions tools, including demonstrating its leadership in a campaign to discredit Russia,” he said.
In the end, he called on the London authorities to “leave an unfounded line of confrontation”. “No hostile move will be left without an adequate and proportionate response,” he has decided.
In 2020, British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab announced a long-awaited list of sanctions against those responsible for human rights violations, known as Magnitsky Sanctions, which included individuals from Russia, among other countries. Are included.
Those on this “blacklist” will be sanctioned with bank accounts blocked and travel restrictions, marking the first time the United Kingdom has punished suspects of crimes against human rights. In the Russian case, it affects those involved in the murders of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
