On 24 February, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the “biggest and toughest sanctions package” on Russia following the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. This set of actions, which has been updated since then and will come into force immediately, includes heavy sanctions on key Russian elites, state-owned companies and banking entities. In addition to Russia, the British government has also applied sanctions to Belarus for its role in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
