All new and painful sanctions of the West are falling on Russia. Assets, people, businesses, banks, etc. are subject to restrictions.
The UK has added new restrictions to the sanctions. In particular, they included Patriarch Kirill.
We will not get tired of defending freedom and democracy, continue to put pressure on Putin until Ukraine succeeds. Putin's allies continue to turn a blind eye to war crimes and support his bloody offensive, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said.
According to her, the restrictions are aimed at those who contribute to the war and the perpetrators of this war, which Putin started in Ukraine. They brought countless suffering to Ukraine, in particular, the forced displacement and adoption of children.
Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, was sanctioned precisely for supporting and approving Putin's war.
Who else is restricted
Sanctions also affected other Putin's henchmen. The restrictions are aimed at military commanders and Russian gun dealers who supply weapons to Myanmar.
In particular, Russian children's rights ombudswoman Maria Lvova-Belova was also subjected to restrictions. She is accused of allowing 2,000 unprotected children to be forcibly removed from the Lugansk and Donetsk regions and organizing a new policy aimed at facilitating their forced adoption in Russia.
Sanctions were imposed on Sergei Savostyanov, a member of the Moscow City Duma and a member of Putin's political elite, for publicly supporting the war in Ukraine.
Alexey Isaikin, president and member of the board of the Volga-Dnepr group, was also subject to restrictions. This Russian transportation company is a significant air carrier that has been contracted by the Russian government to build air bridges carrying important cargo.
The sanctions also extended to four military colonels of the 64th separate motorized rifle brigade. The military of this unit killed, raped and tortured the civilians of Bucha.
The restrictions included members of the so-called Rescue Committee for Peace and Order, an organization that cooperates with the Russian army to support the occupation of the Kherson region.

It was noted in the UK that Putin is carrying out aggressive actions not only in Ukraine. Russian exports fuel conflicts around the world.
That is why the new sanctions affect organizations responsible for supplying aircraft parts to the Myanmar military.
These new sanctions will limit Myanmar's military junta, which is heavily dependent on Russian aviation resources. This will cut Putin off from profiting from the sales that finance his war machine.
Sanctions against Russia
- The world continues to impose new and new sanctions against the aggressor in the hope of stopping the Russian war machine. The EU recently approved the sixth and most painful sanctions package so far. It suggests a partial oil embargo on Russian carriers. Experts reported that Western sanctions affected about 9 out of 10 companies in Russia. Some of these companies were forced to completely stop their activities.
- Canada also announced the imposition of sanctions against Russia. We are talking about a ban on the provision of a number of services for the Russian oil and gas and chemical industries. These restrictions banned the export of 28 services essential for the operation of the oil, gas and chemical industries, including technical, managerial, accounting and advertising services.
- And Montenegro has also joined the EU sanctions against Russia. The sanctions lists included deputies of the Russian State Duma, as well as employees of Putin's administration. The media reported that the list included 34 Russian citizens whose assets were seized. The list includes Alexei Gromov, who is called the curator of the Kremlin propaganda.
