The United Kingdom has announced new sanctions in response to Russia's forced deportation of Ukrainian children.
This was announced by British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, according to Yevropeiska Pravda.
According to the statement, London has imposed 14 new sanctions in response to Russia's attempts to destroy the Ukrainian national identity, including 11 sanctions against those involved in the forced deportation of Ukrainian children.
It is noted that Russian officials will face asset freezes and travel bans due to their involvement in the forced deportation of Ukrainian children and the spread of hate propaganda.
Among the announced Russian officials are Ksenia Mishonova, the Children's Rights Commissioner in the Moscow region, and Sergey Kravtsov, the Minister of Education.
Also today, two Russian propagandists responsible for spreading propaganda aimed at inciting violence and hatred against Ukraine and its people were sanctioned, including former Russia Today host Anton Krasovsky, who said on air that Ukrainian children should be drowned and burned.
