LONDON — Britain has sanctioned the adult daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in a move coordinated with Western allies.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office on Friday added Putin’s daughters Katerina Vladimirovna Tikhonova and Maria Vladimirovna Vorontsova and Lavrov’s daughter Yekaterina Sergeyevna Vinokurova to Britain’s list of people sanctioned over Russia’s deadly invasion of Ukraine.
All three will have their UK assets frozen and will not be able to travel to the UK or do business with UK citizens or companies.
The FCDO said the sanctions are another show of global unity against Russia’s aggression. The United States hit all three with sanctions on Wednesday.
“Our unprecedented package of sanctions hits the elite and their families while it degrades Russia’s economy on a scale not seen since the fall of the Soviet Union,” British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said, urging allies to “do more.” do” to cut off Putin’s funding sources.
