The UK Updated List of Sanctioned Russians

Sanctions have been directed against persons responsible for the erasing of the Ukrainian identity and nation

On July 17, Great Britain imposed sanctions on 14 citizens of Russia, executors of the program to destroy Ukrainian identity and the nation in general. We remind you that deportation is internationally recognised as a method of genocide that Russia uses against Ukrainians.

After Lvova-Belova, the commissioner for children's rights in the Moscow region and the minister of education of Russia, was included in the list as a participant in the program of deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia and Russian-controlled territories. According to the UK Foreign, commonwealth and development office, the number of deported Ukrainian children exceeds 19.000, and a member of the Russian parliament spoke about 700.000.

"Many deported children are relocated to a network of re-education camps in illegally annexed Crimea and mainland Russia, where they are exposed to Russia-centric academic, cultural, patriotic, and military education," the UK Foreign, commonwealth and development office. 

For "abhorrent" anti-Ukrainian propaganda and inciting hatred towards Ukrainians, Great Britain imposed sanctions on another propagandist and minister of culture of Russia.

"In his chilling programme of forced child deportation, and the hate-filled propaganda spewed by his lackeys, we see Putin's true intention – to wipe Ukraine from the map," James Cleverly.

Between the start of the full-scale war and the end of July 2023, the UK has sanctioned more than 1,600 individuals and entities, including 29 banks with international assets of £1 trillion and more than 130 oligarchs with combined assets of more than £145 billion. In addition, Great Britain limited cooperation with Russia, the profit from which would be more than £20 billion.

The official position of Great Britain is as follows: "Peace will bring home Ukraine's lost children – and feed the hungry of the world."
