Russia revealed entry restrictions on numerous British people on Monday, in action to sanctions enforced by Britain previously this year and in 2020.

Moscow chose to “impose personal sanctions on an appropriate number of British representatives closely involved in anti-Russian activities,” according to a Russian Foreign Ministry declaration.

The declaration stated the relocation can be found in action to British punitive procedures in December 2020 and April 2021 that it stated were enforced under “contrived and absurd pretexts.”

Britain at first enforced sanctions targeting particular people over claims of corruption, freezing the properties, and enforcing entry restrictions on 22 individuals in Russia, South Africa, South Sudan, and numerous Latin American nations who were implicated of corruption.

The sanctions consisted of 14 individuals supposedly linked to 230-million-dollar tax scams in Russia in a case exposed by Sergei Magnitsky, a legal representative who passed away in a Moscow jail in 2009 under situations yet to be clarified.
