PM Johnson, his counterparts banned from entry to Russia 


Russia on Saturday banned UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a dozen senior politicians from entry in what it described as a set of personal sanctions to retaliate against Britain’s support for Ukraine.

It accused the British leadership of pursuing a “Russophobic course” by pushing its western allies to bring in “senseless and counterproductive” sanctions packages, affecting individuals in President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.


Sanctioned ministers include Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, Chancellor Rishi Sunak and other senior members of the Cabinet.

Former prime minister Theresa May, a critic of Russia who authorised sanctions after the Salisbury poison incident in 2018, and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon are also on the sanctions list.

  • President Vladimir Putin listens to Nikolai Yevmenov during the Navy Day parade in Saint Petersburg in 2021. 
  • The head of the Russian navy, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, has met crew members from the sunken missile cruiser Moskva and said they would continue to serve in the navy, the Russian defence ministry said.
  • The Russian defence ministry released a 26-second video showing Admiral Yevmenov and two other officers standing outside in front of around 100 sailors on a parade ground. It showed them speaking to one man.
  • The ministry did not say when the meeting took place.
  • Russia said on Thursday that the Moskva sank after an ammunition explosion. Ukraine said it hit the vessel, the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet, with a missile.

On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met military personnel from the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection and presented them with state awards.

He thanked the officers for their service, wished them good health and said their families could be proud of their work.

He also stressed the importance of Ukraine having an “almost uninterrupted connection” with the country’s western partners since the first days of the war, a presidential statement said.
