Russia’s foreign ministry expands blacklist of sanctions against Australia

The Russian Foreign Ministry informed that Russia has expanded its blacklist of sanctions against Australia, adding 121 strong agencies, business individuals and journalists.

“The Australian government continues to expand sanctions to affect a growing number of Russian citizens, including officials and their family members, business and media personalities. In response, Russia added 121 new Australians to its ‘shutdown card’, including powerful agency leaders, businessmen, experts, journalists and others in the country who incites Russian-hate sentiment,” the circular said.

The circular disclosed that blacklisted persons were banned from entering Russia indefinitely.
