8 March 2022
Money obtained through corruption or criminality, including that linked to Russia, is not welcome in the UK. This is why the Government is at the forefront of tackling illicit finance, combatting the threat from source to destination.
My department has introduced the toughest possible sanctions in response to Russian aggression in Ukraine and sent a clear message that there is no place for stolen and illegitimate wealth from Russia in the UK.
