UK ADDS 12 NEW NAMES TO RUSSIA SANCTIONS AND CORRECT ANOTHER        

On 16 June, a Notice from HM Treasury advised that 12 new entries have been added to the consolidated list and are now subject to an asset freeze.  In addition, the existing entry for Yuriy Volodymyrovych IVAKIN has been corrected.

The sanctioned names include Russian Children’s Rights Commissioner Maria Lvova-Belova – for the forced transfer and adoption of Ukrainian children – and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, his prominent support of Russian military aggression in Ukraine.  Also included were 4 senior military officials from a unit “known to have killed, raped, and tortured civilians” in the Ukrainian town of Bucha.
