Almost 300 British MPs are ‘proud’ of Russian sanctions placed on them as it’s a ‘badge of honour’ and joke ‘how will we cope’

The Kremlin has sanctioned almost 300 British MPs on Wednesday in response to the UK placing sanctions 386 sanctions of Russian politicians last month.

A Kremlin statement has accused the Conservative and Labour members of “whipping up of Russophobic hysteria.”

However this has back fired on Moscow as the British Prime Minister told MPs that they “should regard it as a badge of honour.”

British MPs find this quite hilarious as the former Brexit Secretary David Davis MP joked, “how will I ever cope” and Tory former chief whip Mark Harper said he was “proud” to be included, whilst ex-minister Andrew Murrison said he was “delighted.”

Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs), Boris Johnson told the House of Commons, “It’s I think no disrespect to those who haven’t been sanctioned, when I say that all those 287 should regard it as a badge of honour.

“And what we will do is keep up our robust and principled support for the Ukrainian people and their right to protect their lives, their families, and to defend themselves.

“That’s what this country is doing, and that has the overwhelming support, I think, of the whole House.”

The translation of the Russian Foreign Ministry statement said the sanctions have been applied “on the basis of reciprocity.”

It added, “These persons, who are no longer allowed to enter the Russian Federation, took the most active part in the establishment of anti-Russian sanctions instruments in London, and contribute to the groundless whipping up of Russophobic hysteria in the UK.

“The hostile rhetoric and far-fetched accusations coming from the mouths of British parliamentarians not only condone the hostile course of London, aimed at demonizing our country and its international isolation, but are also used by opponents of mutually respectful dialogue with Russia to undermine the foundation of bilateral co-operation.”
