UK sanctions have been coordinated with international allies to impose severe cost on Putin and his regime. We are acting together, as our collective impact is greater than the sum of its parts. Russia seeks to have economic, diplomatic and industrial relations with a very wide range of countries. We assess that these will be severely impacted by Russia's aggressive and unlawful actions against Ukraine.
