The UK has added Russian president Vladimir Putin’s daughters to its sanctions list, matching a move by the United States this week.
Katerina Tikhonova and Maria Vorontsova, Putin’s two adult daughters with his former wife Lyudmila Shkrebneva, and Yekaterina Sergeyevna Vinokurova, daughter of foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, will be subject to travel bans and asset freezes.
The UK say the move will further target “the lavish lifestyles of the Kremlin’s inner circle”.
“By freezing the assets and limiting the travel of Putin’s allies, the UK Government is sealing off reservoirs of cash funding the conflict, while also making sure those who have benefited from Putin’s rule feel the consequences.”
