London prepares sanctions that Russians and their assets may fall under

The launch of its own sanctions mechanism, which will allow to block the assets of individuals suspected of violating human rights, is one of the priority goals of the UK government after the country's exit from the EU.

This was reported by the Financial Times, focusing on the fact that under the sanctions of the Foggy Albion may fall, including citizens of Russia.

The authors of the material note that the UK’s own mechanism for imposing sanctions will allow London to make decisions and implement it without regard to the opinion of 27 EU countries.

It is expected that after the launch of the mechanism, in February-March of this year, a list of specific individuals will be released, in respect of which Britain considers it necessary to take restrictive measures.

The editors, referring to information obtained from sources in the government, reported a list of countries whose citizens will first be on the sanctions list.

It is unlikely that anyone will be surprised at the presence on this list, in addition to Russia, of countries such as North Korea, Libya and, possibly, Saudi Arabia due to the murder of journalist Khashogi.

The head of the British Foreign Office, Dominic Rab, admits that with the introduction of restrictive measures, the so-called “Magnitsky law” will be applied, which allows you to block assets and prohibit citizens involved in human rights violations from entering the country.

    Well, isn't it good fellows Britons ?! So, you see, they will put us in order, return our bureaucrats to their homeland! True, they will keep our money, stolen by bureaucrats, but at least they will scare our "elite" in the first generation!

    get the Russians and their assets

    laughing He laughed. They’re sitting at home, some strangers abroad are hanging around, it’s time for sanctions and their assets (something that has been acquired through overwork). I would be extremely happy if all of their assets were taken away. Good news. good

    I understand the excitement of the author. But I would like to at least roughly imagine what category of citizens may fall under sanctions, and how will this affect the Russians as a whole?
