UK Sanctions Russia After It Recognized Donetsk And Luhansk As Independent +Germany Cancels Nord Stream 2

On Tuesday February 22,2022, the UK announced a series of sanctions against Russia after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered troops into the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk on Monday, after he recognised them as independent.

Five banks have had their assets frozen, along with three Russian billionaires - who will also be hit with UK travel bans.

Boris Johnson said Russia's actions amounted to a "renewed invasion" and the sanctions were a "first barrage". He stressed these could be extended - but faced calls for tougher action now.

The sanctions will be similar to those already imposed on the three billionaires, but could take weeks to enforce as new legislation will be required.

The department said that in the coming weeks British firms would also be prevented from doing business in the two breakaway areas - similar to Crimea, a region Russia illegally annexed in 2014.

In addition, Germany has said it will freeze approval of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Russia - a move welcomed by Mr Johnson.

Although it doesn't affect existing supplies, it does mark what could be a change in direction from Russian gas-addicted Berlin.

He also suggested Russia should be stripped of hosting this season's Champions League Final.
