Russia’s Foreign Ministry has announced on Saturday that it has banned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary Liz Tras, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace and 10 other members of the British government from entering the country.
The move was taken “in view of the British government’s unprecedented hostility, in particular the imposition of sanctions on high-ranking Russian officials,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that it would soon expand the list.
The Kremlin has described Johnson, one of Ukraine’s most loyal supporters, as “the most active participant in the anti-Russian race.”
One week ago, Johnson visited Ki, where he and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky praised each other for their cooperation after the Russian invasion, which Moscow calls a “special operation.”
“Britain, our international partners, are united in condemning the Russian government’s actions in Ukraine and calling on the Kremlin to end the war,” a British government spokesman said in response to Moscow’s decision to ban Johnson and other British politicians.
“We remain determined to support Ukraine,” he said.
