Ukraine War: Russia Bans UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson From Country Over Ukraine War

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace and 10 other senior politicians – mostly members of the Cabinet – have also been barred.

United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and other senior ministers have been banned from entering Russia over the UK’s “hostile” stance on the war in Ukraine, according to BBC.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace and 10 other senior politicians – mostly members of the Cabinet – have also been barred.

Moscow said the decision had been made in retaliation to the UK’s sanctions against it since it invaded Ukraine.

In March, Moscow imposed a similar ban against US President Joe Biden.

The full list is:

– Prime Minister Boris Johnson

– Foreign Secretary Liz Truss

– Defence Secretary Ben Wallace

– Deputy Prime Minister, Lord Chancellor, and Secretary of State for Justice Dominic Raab

– Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps

– Home Secretary Priti Patel

– The Chancellor Rishi Sunak

– Minister for Entrepreneurship, Energy and Industrial Strategy Kwasi Kwarteng

– Minister for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Nadine Dorries

– Minister for the Armed Forces James Heappey

– First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon

– Attorney General for England and Wales and advocate general for Northern Ireland Suella Braverman

– Conservative MP and former British Prime Minister Theresa May

In a statement, Russia’s foreign ministry said: “London’s unbridled information and political campaign aimed at isolating Russia internationally, creating conditions for containing our country and strangling the domestic economy” were responsible for its decision.

It added: “In essence, the British leadership is deliberately aggravating the situation around Ukraine, pumping the Kyiv regime with lethal weapons and coordinating similar efforts on the part of Nato.”

In response to the sanctions, a UK government spokesperson said: “The UK and our international partners stand united in condemning the Russian government’s reprehensible actions in Ukraine and calling for the Kremlin to stop the war.

“We remain resolute in our support for Ukraine.”
