UK: 206 ADDITIONAL PERSONS ADDED TO RUSSIA SANCTIONS LISTS – INCLUDES 178 RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS IN BREAKAWAY REGIONS

On 13 April, a Notice from HM Treasury advised that 206 entries have been added to the Consolidated List and are now subject to an asset freeze.  A separate news release from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office advising of 178 new sanctions, coordinated with the EU, targeting those who prop up Russian-backed illegal breakaway regions of Ukraine. The latter also advises of secondary legislation to be laid which will ban the import of steel and iron products and export of luxury goods.
