Britain on Friday April 8, announced sanctions on the daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov over Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Foreign Office said it was targeting the “lavish lifestyles of the Kremlin’s inner circle” following sanctions on Putin’s daughters Katerina Tikhonova and Maria Vorontsova, and Lavrov’s daughter Yekaterina Vinokurova.

The new sanctions follow similar actions by the United States in targeting the three women, who are now subject to UK travel bans and asset freezes.

“Through the G7, we are working with partners to end the use of Russian energy and further hit Putin’s ability to fund his illegal and unjustified invasion of Ukraine,” said Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.
