Australian Foreign Ministry expands anti-Russian sanctions
The Australian Foreign Ministry announced on Wednesday that it plans to extend the anti-Russian sanctions to 38 more people, thus deciding to expand the sanctions list to 50 Russians and Ukrainians, the RIA Novosti news agency's website quotes.
Earlier, in connection with the entry into the Russian Federation of Crimea and Sevastopol, Australia banned the entry of 12 citizens of Russia and Ukraine, their accounts frozen.
"Since Russia is not taking practical steps to de-escalate the crisis (in Ukraine), I decided to extend Australia's financial sanctions and travel bans to 38 more Russians and Ukrainians and 11 businesses," Australian Foreign Minister Julia Bishop said in a statement released yesterday. The names of the blacklisted are not indicated in the message.
"It is in the national interests of Australia to have a democratic Ukraine capable of determining its future," the minister said.
