United Kingdom: UK sanctions leaders of Ukraine breakaway regions

The UK government has sanctioned Russian-imposed leaders of breakaway regions in Ukraine.Two leaders of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics have had their assets frozen.

Separatists in the eastern regions, which together make up the Donbas, set up unrecognised pro-Russian statelets in 2014 after the annexation of Crimea.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said the UK will keep imposing sanctions on those legitimising Russia’s invasion.
