Sanctions: Russia

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN 151190, tabled on 31 March 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of implementation of secondary sanctions against organisations and individuals undertaking economic or military activity with sanctioned Russian entities and individuals.

We do not speculate on future sanctions, but have made clear that we will continue to ratchet up the pressure on Putin. In response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine we have announced an unprecedented package of sanctions. We have sanctioned over 1400 individuals and businesses since the invasion. UK sanctions apply to any individual or entity in the UK, and to any UK individual or entity globally. The UK's sanctions therefore apply to multinationals' UK operations, as well as any relevant economic activity involving a UK person.
