Russia on Monday has made an announcement that 39 more prominent Brits have been added to its list of people who are banned from taking entry into the nation, including opposition Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron.
While stepping ahead on taking action, Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party’s leader in Westminister, as well as Piers Morgan, a TV presenter and journalist, were also banned from Russia.
Russia has added that its actions were in response to UK sanctions against Russians, which it condemned.
While stepping ahead on executing the plan, Russia has imposed a ban on other senior figures in Britains’s political and media establishment, saying that they “contribute to London’s hostile course is aiming at demonisation of our nation and its international isolation.”
The Foreign Ministry of Russia has stated that the “pernicious actions of the United Kingdom is planting Russophobia, spreading false information about our country and supporting the Kyiv neo-Nazi regime will receive an adequate and decisive response from the Russian side.”
It added, “The choice in favour of confrontation is a conscious decision of the British political establishment, which bears all responsibility for the consequences.
At the same time, Britain has led the way in strict sanctions against Russia since it has called for the full-scale invasion of Ukraine on early morning of February 24, 2022 , and has also been one of Kyiv’s staunchest supporters.
