UK ADDS 65 NAMES TO RUSSIA AND BELARUS SANCTIONS LISTS

On 24 March, HM Treasury advised that 59 entries have been added to the Russia sanctions regime and 6 entries have been added to the Belarus regime.  While the Belarus additions are all entities, the Russian list comprises 33 individuals and 24 entities (which include the Wagner mercenary or private military contractor group, Russian Railways and the State Authority for Military Industry of the Republic of Belarus).

Those sanctioned also include Gazprombank, Alfa Bank, state-run shipping company Sovcomflot and Alrosa , the world’s largest diamond producer.
